Sunday 23 September – Thames Valley members woke to pouring rain. Slowly it eased, and it had stopped by the time we arrived at Kintbury in Berkshire, where we met our visitors from SI Weston Super Mare.
After a convivial and delicious lunch at the Dundas Arms, we went out into glorious sunshine for our round trip on the horse drawn barge “Kennet Valley”.
At the half-way piont we were encouraged to get off the barge, and some of us wandered up onto the canal bridge, while Drummer enjoyed a snack .on the grass.
Viewing the countryside at a leisurely pace along the Kennet and Avon canal while talking amongst the group was a very pleasant way to spend Sunday afternoon.
We look forward to another Friendship meeting next year.
