|Blue Sky led us to believe we were in for a good run...|
|An interesting approach to lock 23W under a huge viaduct|
|and unusual paddles|
|Looking back once we had risen in the lock|
|The obelisk can still be seen in the distance as we climbed through wonderful countryside.|
Two of the pounds were very low and I had to proceed at snails pace & dead in the middle. Geoff had to let water down for one of them for me to get anywhere.
|and when we reached lock 32W at the summit one of them kindly took our picture!|
Average speed:0.36 mph (2.95 lock/mph)
