|Keeping his bike between the Swans. Only way to get past. Great way to slow the cyclist down Maybe we aught to make a couple of cardboard cut outs!!!|
Having left later then anticipated cos we wanted to have a look at the river, we got underway late morning in glorious sunshine.. All the locks were with us or with boats coming down . In fact between 15 and 16 on Offerton locks we didn't need to raise a paddle as the pound above was flooded and water poured over the top gates.
Although the day started promising the clouds soon appeared. Then the wind started and it turned really chilly. Time to moor up, we thought, and managed to get in at Dunhampstead before the heavens opened. Tomorrow should be a good day so, before we set off again, Ian is going to touch up the paintwork on the gunwales. No doubt the first lock I take the boat into, I'll probably take it all off again!!
