The Thames from Castle Eaton to a few miles downriver of Kempsford.

It was chilli as we got onto the water at Castle Eaton. The staff at the Red Lion pub had kindly agreed to let us get on the water from their grassy back garden.  Paddler Neil Montgomery had joined me for this trip, helping with the car shuttle. It had been raining recently and the water had risen by at least a foot in the last few days, it moved swiftly, carrying our boats effortlessly along the river.

I was using my new underwater housing with a Fuji X-T10 mirrorless camera, the combination was working well. I will put a review of the Meikon housing that I am using on here soon.
