Early start to beat the heat

Our Early Morning visitors at Clifton Lock
An early start whilst it was relatively cool with not particular destination in mind.  We thought we would see if there was space above Days Lock.  We have moored there previously and it was a wonderful setting and we could walk into Dorchester.

There were some large properties lining the banks with their wonderful sweeping lawns stretching down to the river

and their lovely little boat parks!

and some bigger boat houses
When we approached Days Lock and the possible mooring there was only one other boat so we were in luck.  We parked ourselves round the corner from them after a couple of about turns whilst we considered our best position!!  Sadly no shade today but a lovely setting.

Last time we visited here Geoff climbed the hill ahead of us but no chance today...far too hot

An evening visitor

Did you manage to find a way through the barb wire to get to Dorchester? Oh and did you get away with not having to pay the £8 from the grumpy men?
