Left Runnymede, passing under the M25, through Staines heading for Shepperton. Found very pleasant moorings at Shepperton. Next morning cruised towards Hampton Court for a tourist visit to the Palace. On the way we passed the houseboat called Astoria, now owned by Dave Gilmore of Pink Floyd and is used as a recording studio. After our visit of Hampton Court Palace we had to head off to Teddington to await passage through to Brentford on the tidal Thames. Early start, we have got to be ready for 6.00 am.
