A short day today, just five locks and three miles to Berkhamsted.
It’s quiet on the canal, there doesn’t seem to be many people moving around. I suppose there may be some more people out during the half term week but in the meantime we seem to have the waterways pretty much to ourselves.
We passed a couple of working boats as we came through one of the locks before Berkhamsted who said they had got stuck in the pound below the lock but they are heavy old working boats and we were fine.
There was space to moor just under the footbridge so we stopped there. Steve walked down to see if there were any other spaces but we decided to stay where we were and went for a walk around lovely Berkhamsted.
|Good morning Mr Swan!|
|Hello Mr Heron - we seem to be at one with the birds this morning.|
|I can't remember why I took this - it's called Gas 2 Lock. Are the trees giving way to Autumn?|
|Passing the working boats.|
|Mooring up in Berko!|
