    Default Chertsey and the Abbey River - tomorrow 15/6!

    Hey folks,

    Late planning due to it being planned whilst paddling earlier, on a paddle that was planned even later

    A few of us heading for Chertsey Mead to do a Thames/Abbey River loop. Head up the river, hopefully enjoying a tailwind, then hang a left at Penton Hook and grab some lunch on the island there. Then back down the Abbey River. Sometimes this section is just a nice peaceful trip of 45 mins or so, in a lovely narrow backwaters. Sometimes there are trees to pass. And sometimes, its a battle through salad for several hours. This year, I don't know which will apply!

    Car Park at Chertsey Meads (Mead Lane Car Park by the playground) is about 100m or so from put in, so some folk might prefer a trolley. There is a height barrier, fine for normal cars with canoes, but remotely operated for higher vehicles!

    Meet 11am for an 11.15ish put in.

    Thanks chaps and Mal for the route suggestion. All paddling days are enjoyable, but today was a real treat.

    I've never been that partial to lettuce, so I'm pleased it wasn't on today's menu!
