Approaching the lock

One of Neil Young's greatest songs, Powderfinger, opens with, "Look out, Mama, there's a white boat comin' up the river", which is what we have here. Neil Young goes on to describe a violent incident in the American Civil War but this boat is taking a peaceful route through Teddington Lock.

The Lock is a pretty destination for a walk most times but on a grey damp day it is less busy than usual and so there are no hideously bright cagoules to spoil the picture or boisterous children to shatter the peace.
