We had made plans re who we were leaving with and sharing locks last night. So just before 7:00 Andrew nudged Uncle Mort aside to allow us out and we set off with Neil and Linda on Earnest.
Linda and I worked the locks and Heddi & Neil steered and we were at the top of the flight in an hour! Linda had to walk back to get their car, we carried on with Neil following. Through Calcutt locks, then Neil went north and we went south.
As we were ascending Napton locks we watched a buffalo giving birth, sorry no pictures.
