With such a short distance to travel I arrived at the campsite with plenty of time to explore Chertsey. I started with lunch at the Bridge Hotel, a posh establishment with very mediocre food - a breakfast bagel and a glass of cider. From there I walked into the shopping area and explored a little. On my way back to the campground I came across a hair salon that was advertising a special for a haircut. I decided that, after so many days on the river, it would be nice to have my hair washed. So I went in and asked what it would cost to just have my hair washed. After much discussion and a call to their boss it was decided the young ladies could wash my hair for 5 pounds. That was fine with me so I relaxed in the chair while my hair wash washed - a pleasant interlude before I returned to my tent.
In the evening a food truck came to the campsite and offered meals to the campers. This was a regular occurrence so a permanent patio area was available to their customers. I ate my supper there and enjoyed a very good meal in the good company of some fellow campers.
