Another 12 miles rowed today from Staines to Hampton Court. We moored up at the side of Hampton Court so we won’t see its full glory until tomorrow. We had a following wind for most of the day and finished around 4.30, just as the clouds had cleared and the sun came out. We have moved far beyond the planned stopping places and, as a consequence, our hotel today was miles from our finishing point 28 miles infact, the train journey took nearly 3 hours, including a bus ride due to maintenance on the line. This has to be repeated tomorrow with our luggage, and those of you who have seen it will know what I mean! It really is enough to make you give in. However, there’s plenty of time tomorrow to make the journey down to Teddington Lock. The journey is almost finished, but, to judge the tides to achieve Putney is the final obstacle
