Above lock 22

2.5 miles 5 locks

Another short journey day, away at 8 and moored up by 10:30. We couldn’t moor exactly where we were on the way down as there was another boat there. So I had to get out the hook and cut cat the reeds and other foliage to make a place to get on and off.

Our youngest daughter and family are arriving in the campsite later, so we just walked up to the cafe at the top of the main flight, had an ice cream and then walked back down.

Earlier we had three swans fly right along the length of the boat. What a lovely sight we thought, until they decided to empty their backsides all over our roof. I took me over half an hour to get it all off!

The back pumping to return water to the top of the locks is solar powered
