Somewhere different.

Still moored at Brentford.


Thursday was spent loafing around the boat with a trip into a different area of Brentford for a look around. Nothing worth talking about there I'm afraid.


Friday we caught the train to Hounslow to find the nearest "T" Mobile shop. Well the Network Southwest  trains must have been having problems because all the trains were showing delayed arrival times. Eventually after about a 30 minute  wait one train arrived and as luck would have it the destination was Hounslow, not the advertised destinations of Weybridge or Mortlake.  The latter 2 apparently just got cancelled without any warning.


We found the shopping centre where "T" Mobile were situated and in no time at all Dot was in possession of a new USB Modem. This unit is supposed to be better than the Datacard which we have used for the last 12 month's.  After a couple of hours window shopping we decided to catch the bus back to Brentford which dropped us right outside Somerfields so we could get a few bits and pieces before returning to the boat.


Photos show various angles at Brentford Lock and Marina.
