Much refreshed by lovely day of rest in Marlow. Nothing to do but eat a nice lunch with a bottle of Pinot Grigio, snooze in the park and swim in the Thames. Yesterday a lovely evening at the Bounty in the independent republic of Cockmarsh with a large and appreciative audience. And today back up the Thames to Henley. Sun shining, plenty of keen scullers practising for the regatta I guess. You might think there is discord between coal boats and plastic boats (much exagerated in my opinion) but it is as nothing to the steadfast aloofness between narrow boats and scullers who inhabit a different planet altogether. Huge fat carp turning lazily in the weeds at Marlow Lock like a whale.
