Al was on her way back to the boat having spent time with her dad so we didn't get to say hello but Del poked his head out of the side hatch. We only managed a brief natter and as we are heading in opposite directions I don't expect paths will cross now until maybe next year when hopefully we can do a good catchup.
the most helpful lockie we had encountered and yes he still talks for England. Mind you the other volunteer Ian could talk equally as much as John and is equally as helpful. On par with John that's for sure.
|The two Ian's chatting away|
|Still nattering and oblivious that the next lock wasn't ready|
|Until John showed up and got the gates open|
|And then it was both of them talking non stop! John is on the left.|
|Good job another boat came along.|
