Day trip to Henley

A couple of hours on a trip boat at Henley, up the course from Hambleden to Marsh Lock and back again.

NEW ORLEANS, my boat for the day. We all had to clear off the top deck when we went under Henley Bridge, as the clearance was a bit tight. The bowthrusters were used.

Great to see several Salters Steamers out on the river

We did see some rowing – paddling down to the start

The start – two boats being held in position ready for the off.

One of several steam boats in evidence.

I think there’s a race going on on the right – looking down the course. On the left a variety of boats playing dodgems.

A historic narrow boat – Tug No 2
