Torksey Lock

Tidal


I must be gaining confidence - I managed to concentrate on holding the rope and taking pics!!

It's much better going down than up.

The gates are amazing - the whole procedure is quite fascinating

And the captain does a brilliant job

This is described in our guide as The Old Mill - no top!!

We tied up at Dunham for lunch - not a lot to see, just fields and the motorway.

The tide was on it's way out so we were flying along with it - doing almost 10km per hour.

A drop in the water level of a good metre - no crocodiles, no mangroves and NO sand flies, hahaha.

Being alert is uppermost - objects protruding are a nuisance. As were the only 2 vessels we came across this morning - on a bend with a shallow bank - passing was done very closely and worryingly. But we made it .

We are moored at the Torksey Lock awaiting the tide in the morning - the next leg is crucial to the tide so that we arrive at the next Lock at the correct time, and then we'll be in the canals.
