Thames Region Virtual Cruise Day 1 Chiswick to Hampton Court

It’s a beautiful morning, the sun is shining, the birds are singing and all is well for this virtual cruise.  Our start is our home mooring at Chiswick Quay Marina, London. The marina was developed in 1974 from an old barge port, when a developer built the houses which surround and own it. Its a great place to moor, giving access to the sea through central London, or up the Thames for a cruise like the one we are just starting. Sinemora is 2nd from left.

Thames Region Virtual Cruise Day 2 Hampton to Staines

From the historic setting of Hampton Court Palace, today we’ll be cruising to our overnight stop at Staines, the historic limit of the City of London’s jurisdiction over the river.

We’ve heard that a group of members is hastening to catch us, having been delayed downriver enjoying Pimms, mixed by Louise Busby, at Chiswick Quay.

Better late than never, and at least they weren’t delayed by Richmond Lock, which John and Gill Oldham had once experienced, during their Thames Days, when the lock renovation closed that stretch for quite some time back in 1994.
