Down the Locks

Big trip today, almost an hour!!
First we decided to try the all day breakfast advertised in the cafe at the top of the locks before Boe departed.  We had seen people devouring them over the past few days but have to say they were somewhat disappointing and served in polystyrene trays....shan't bother again.
Not very busy at the locks so after watering we went straight down.  Despite the extreme cold and wind it was quite pleasant for the first 7 locks and then the hail came............
Luckily we hadn't planned to go far, just position ourselves for an early start tomorrow, weather permitting.......Geoff is getting itchy feet to press on northwards now.
