Two Jays moored at Packet Boat Marina. It's in west London on the Slough Arm of the Grand Union Canal.

We arrived on Wednesday morning. Getting from the service moorings to our pontoon was not without incident.
We stopped on the service mooring to use the elsan and to contact the marina manager to locate our pontoon etc. Once done we walked to the mooring so we knew where we needed to get Two Jays to.
When in the marina we were not sure we had gone to the correct part and stopped to consider what to do. A very friendly moorer told us we were correct but our appoach was not going to work. He was right, it didn't.
He offered and we accepted to come on board and assist. With his advice we started the approach all over again and this worked with the assistance of a second friendly moorer.

Otherwise the rest of our time cruising this week was fairly uneventful. We enjoyed shorter days in increasingly sunnier and hotter weather.

Look under the 'What's New' link on the menubar above to see the changes that have been carried out since last cruising season.

You may be intereste to look at the information pages associated with the waterway slide shows. So far 4 of these have been completed.

If you are new to this site a good place to start is the 'Intro' link on the menu bar. There are introductory pages which, hopefully, will give you an appreciation of the contents. Regular visitors may find something new as well!

Did you meet us on the 'cut'? Use this link to see the photo. Most recent additions are Marcin at Dudswell Bottom Lock and Corin at Red Lion Lock both on the Grand Union Canal. They both assisted us at the lock.
Note on browsers: You should encounter no problems when using Internet Explorer, Opera and Safari. If you do experience a problems, e.g. the menubar on this page does not work please click here. There is a problem if you use Firefox/Mozilla in that even with Javascript turned on the slide shows do not work. I am researching this.
