|Safely on the landing.|
|The first time we have had to use the long handled windlass. It was hard work as the paddle gear left a lot to be desired!|
|Bringing Free Spirit to the lock and so far no alarm!|
We are now moored on Walsham Meadow. Lovely place to walk and take Jade swimming. The forecasted rain didn't arrive until after 6 pm so we enjoyed the afternoon sunshine and reflected on the start of this journey with the hope that nothing more will happen!
|Steam powered although the owner told me she doesn't run anymore|
|Looking down the Basingstoke canal at the first lock. Unfortunately, we are unable to travel this canal because we don't have enough air draft to get under the extremely low bridges!|

I took lots more photos some of which I will post at a later date on my 'And finally'.
And now to my And finally:-
|Don't think the ants appreciated the ladybird eating their aphids.|
|A very scruffy Jay|
