Phew! A very warm day in London…. windy yes but temperatures reached 25 deg C in mid October… for goodness sake! The warmth and sunshine certainly bought out the crowds…. this part of London was heaving.
At about 5pm we heard the news that the Sunday 6am lock out was definitely on….which is good news because after four and a half months…. we need to get home. So we will get up around 4am to have our last shower in the luxury bathrooms…then prep the boat ready for the radio call to leave the berth and proceed to the lock. Two other boats will be joining us.
We will try for Ramsgate or even Dover for Sunday evening and a nights stop over. Then on the Monday it will be either Ramsgate or Dover to home at Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne. We plan to arrive home late afternoon Monday 15th October.
Mike’s two sisters travelled down from Buckinghamshire today to check up on Mike…. they boarded Poli Poli and were then entertained on the South Bank and at Borough Market in Southwark. Margaret spent the day with Sue and Abi Spooner in Covent Garden celebrating Sue’s birthday. A good day was had by all.
