Cruise Notes: Marion's long awaited cruise on the river as she is staying with us for a week. Decided to use the opportunity to run into Maidstone and collect Annette after she had finished work. Set off from the marina on a very dull, cloudy morning and moored at Fairmeadow where Annette met us. Had lunch onboard before taking a short cruise further up river before turning and heading back to Allington via a trip to Allington Lock.
