Day : Friday
Date : 30 August 2019
Start : 1040
Finish : 1500 Blue Lias
As expected the locks were against us, as we were halfway up in the first lock a boat appeared at the bottom, I was about to tell them we would wait when they were joined by a second boat, so that ended that idea. We worked on alone, locks against us until we started meeting hire boats and a couple of private boats coming down, after that it was a good run to Bascote Stair case which had both chambers half full so I guess a boat had gone up before us. The staircase looked quite splendid in the sun.
We stopped to top up with water for the weekend and also eat lunch at Bascote bridge, that just left us two lock to get to the Blue Lias where we will be for the weekend at the Cutweb Internet Boat Club annual rally, so no more postings until we move Monday or maybe Sunday evening, depending on other boat movements.
