The rest of the day was quite relaxing with Wimbledon to watch in the afternoon. We couldn't get a brilliant picture on the TV but it was sufficient to watch. Geoff strolled up to Bathampton to check out the church times and the pub for Sunday.
From mid afternoon onwards lots of boats, mainly hire boats, came past en route down to Bath. The majority of these were going far too fast and one wonders if the hire company actually does brief them to slow down past moored boats. A lot were full of groups, mainly male, obviously intent on hitting the fleshpots of Bath for Saturday night! The beer bottles were already in evidence.
Sunday we walked up for the 10.30 service at St Nicholas Church, about a mile along the towpath. Two interesting sight along the way are shown below.
TV reception poor on the normal aerial so Geoff has had to wrestle setting the satellite up, but he succeeded so I have Wimbledon. Tomorrow we plan to continue towards Bradford.
