At Wallingford

September, early morning view from
the restored butty Betelgeuse, moored
on the Thames at Wallingford.

We were almost alone on the river
for 2 or 3 days, playing whistle tunes
to the beat of the engine and singing
songs as James Loader chugged and
tugged us down to Staines, and later
tugged my houseboat to dry dock.
