As you can see Barney is still enjoying himself and has to assist Geoff at every lock
All the locks on this stretch seemed to have the mooring bollards that there has been so much fuss about. These are single locks so three bollards along the side seems a bit OTT, since we don't use any of them!
Moored just before the entry to the basin as it seemed better for Barney and we thought there would not be so many gongoozlers, however in retrospect it was not such a clever idea as we, together with the other two boats moored there, were cast adrift in the night. There was no great harm done as there was no wind and the canal is very narrow there, just annoying. However to look on the bright side at least the ropes were not cut!
