Cruise Notes: Took the grandchildren on their first river trip up the non-tidal Medway to East Farleigh lock, where we turned without stopping. Moored at Maidstone for a sausage & chips lunch before Cruising down to Allington Lock where we turned again and headed back to Allington Marina. Cleaned the boat ready for filming tomorrow followed by tea & biscuits. Lovely day trip with each one of them taking turns on the helm.
