Passage Plan up the Thames from Gravesend to Kew Bridge

This is the plan for tomorrow. I may regret saying this, but if you’re in Central London and free at lunchtime, come on down. I’ll post bridge updates as we pass them on Instagram @minkypink – proviso being, our boat has a whole load of gubbins on it so don’t judge us for being scruffy, we’re working on it and we’re in a better state than we were.  Also – photos please!

In slack water ease the barge out of berth.
