No point in going back to bed so may as well get going and down the one and only lock for today. Ian filled the lock, I motored in and FS was about to descend when a wide beam turned up blocking the exit from the lock. He was unable to get onto the landing as a boat was using the water point, nothing for it but to sit in the lock entrance. Then as Ian opened the gates he reversed to allow me out. All well and good but I had to avoid the moored boat on the water point and the chap on the wide beam didnt realise I wasnt fully out and started back toward the lock We only avoided a collision because I put the power on and we missed each other by an inch. A bit of good natured banter followed and we were on our way.
This is one very popular place as can be seen by the amount of boats moored.

Not expecting to blog in the next day or so as we may push across and stay on the 14 day mooring. Olivers sports day is on Wednesday and he begged us to be there. Only to happy to oblige for our grandson.
