So I had an amazing day. Jamie, the broker that sold me my boat, asked if I’d be interested in helping him deliver a ‘classic’ boat down the River Wey to the Windsor Racecourse on the River Thames for a client. Needless to say…
We went through four locks altogether, three we did ourselves and one with a lockkeeper. So it was actually a great introduction for me.
We cruised past some amazing scenery and sights. This is a truly beautiful and peaceful area next to one of the busiest cities in the world.
Note the date on the Thames lock sign! The horse barn (where the working horses were rested) is of similar age. Some of the homes along the way (or the Wey) were amazing, and I’m assured they come with amazing price tags. This area is close enough to London for many wealthy people to be able to live here and work in the city. Many sports stars, politicians, and other famous people have homes along this stretch.
