Cruise Notes: Had to take advantage of a beautiful day and get the boat on the river, what better excuse than to pickup Annette after her morning working in the charity shop. Gentle trip upriver with nothing on the water apart from 'Kevayling'. Moored, single handed, at Maidstone Fairmeadow and had lunch ready as Annette boarded. Following lunch a return gentle cruise downriver, moored in our berth and a cup of tea before home.
