The weather at the Thames Jubilee Pageant should give you some idea of what it is like.
We had planned to take this week off to do a little gentle cruising around the East Anglian rivers, and the weekend before was glorious, so it was with mounting anticipation we looked forward to spending time in our favourite cruising grounds.
For those who have never been, spend a liitle google time looking at the Blackwater, Deben, Ore, Stour, Colne, Medway etc and dream. Access to some can be challenging - you have to get your timing right (see Eastcoastrivers ) - but the effort is repaid a thousand fold.
But I should have known better on the packing front. Definitely a triumph of hope over experience.
