Continuing on our way down the Medway towards Maidstone starting from the The Malta Inn with its outside tables some sheltered by the willow tree our boat Kentish Lady took 1 hour to travel to Maidstone Town Centre and back again
The pub was very busy, inside and out, the sunshine was working its magic with everyone.
This is the inside seating of The Kentish Lady (Keith at the bar!) plenty of room for the 18 of us and many more.
Several boats are moored along from the starting point, all lived in and they threw up some great reflections, I thought this one looked as though it had lights on it shining back.
More living space here and how about that reflection?
In some ways our boat spoilt the reflection but there again it made in my opinion something a bit different, I hope you agree?
Complete with a roof garden and bicycle garage.
Very pretty houses but I don't think I would like to live so near the water.
Here we go, this just shows you a general scene with Maidstone still hiding from us.
Now this one, a fisherman relaxing with his bait and lunch beside him. It just gave me that "feel good" feeling, I don't know why but I hope that you can see it as I do.
Can't end today without a beautiful swan, there isn't much wildlife on the river with two little passenger boats an hour and various motor cruisers and canoeists wending their way back and forth.
Well we are just arriving in Maidstone so final part tomorrow.
Thanks for dropping by.
nite nite, luv Mike XX
