Before we set off this morning we pulled onto the water point to top up the tanks. 30 minutes later we were on our way and unbeknown to us 5 boats moored through the bridge 'ole and round the corner also had the same idea. So the lock queue was horrendous. Didn't help matters that we had the slowest boat imaginable in the queue and he would insist on doing it himself and raising the paddle a bit at a time. I had to stay out by the winding hole because there was no room on the landing and when I did manage to get tied to a bollard, a Canaltime hire boat came storming round the corner and headed straight for the lock. I shouted to him that we were all waiting and I heard one of the ladies say "well that's rude they wont let us share! He finally got the message when I pointed out that these were single locks and not doubles. I mean.....come on........ they had already done singles ever since they left Stenson so quite what they were thinking was beyond me.
|So lucky to have left the lock before the grass cutting crew stated.|
