Another pleasant cruising day with no problems I am thankful to say. Admittedly we are being very careful and I am keeping dead centre of all the pounds, but no serious groundings today. One or two of the paddles don't want to unlock but we have managed with just the one where this happens.
|From our kitchen window this morning|
|Down through these wonderful hills again|
|Leaving Lock 25 ...the real world could be a million miles away|
|This is the lock waiting place and that is as far in as we can get our stern.|
|Geoff was quite glad he did not have to operate the gate as it took 240 turns to lift it....|
|Looking back from lock 22 at Swaithwaite|
Average speed:0.40 mph (2.56 lock/mph)
