While we filled with water Diana took a trip to the charity shop to get rid of some jigsaws but when she returned the bag was faller than when she went. We set off down the flight, some locks against us and some with us. Our plan was to get to Grendon Bridge as the chaps were supposed to be cutting the tree down today and we would then get through in the morning. When we arrived at about half one there were no one about and no tapes across the bridge so we went through, but once under the bridge it you could see the small bits over the towpath they cut off to make it OK for walkers, The main tree is still laying across the canal, but too late, we were through.
Well we haven’t seen any snow at all but its not been very warm, about 4°C and below freezing over night. For once back at the marina there was next to no wind and I slid nicely backwards down to our berth, of course no one was watching except thischap sitting on the end of one of the pontoons and it went perfect, I even had time for the photo.
8¾ miles, 11 locks in 4¾ hours.
