Roof Down - Tunnel vision


In the Lock Basin

Filling the lock

Yesterday another Australian couple on a narrow boat called Wobbly pulled up behind us - we've seen each other before and have kept criss crossing, but managed to get to have a chat this time. They've been canal boating for 5 years.

6 Locks today and we had an able bodied helper

Tanya is very interested in boating and we asked if she would like to come with us through the locks - it's her day off so she jumped at the offer.

It was misty and drizzly when we left the Calypso but it did clear up as we approached the locks.

This is where Tanya left us to walk back to the Calypso (about half an hour's walk), we stopped there to fill up with water and have lunch. Then we kept going as there were 2 more locks to go and a few low bridges before we reached our planned destination.

This was the us filling the final lock.

So now it's sit down time, and tomorrow we will go out and explore Cherry Tree.
