Sunday 3rd and Monday 4th September 2017 in Pyrford Marina.
A special treat for our friend Soo was one of R's special "Smiley" breakfasts.
We had heard, somewhat to our alarm, that the builder for our house extension is starting this morning - two weeks earlier than we were expecting! Good job that we had already booked MM into Pyrford Marina.
We cruised the few miles to Pyrford, moored up M, walked the towpath to Byfleet Station and took the train home. The train journey took three hours (instead of less than an hour) as South West Trains was in chaos with all trains running over an hour late and one train to Waterloo being announced every five minutes for half an hour as departing from Platform 5, when it had actually already left!
Soo said that she'd had the most wonderful time and it was a pleasure to have her on board.
In a couple of weeks we will be back on MM as they will knock down our old kitchen and bathroom and cut off the water and drains - so please watch this space.
Two days: 17 miles, 11 locks and 7.9 hours.
Trip: 318 miles, 295 locks and 203.1 hours.
