Sunday 9 October 2016

Long day today – 19 locks and 17 miles – it took us just over ten hours.  The weather was good for most of the day which meant there were plenty of people out and about.

I enlisted the help of several people on our travels.  We managed to share a few locks today and did the last five or six with a family who were good company.

Two locks from Bulls Bridge Junction and the heavens opened - just enough to make us cold and very wet!

Somebody told us that it could be noisy with the lorries delivering to Tesco at Bulls Bridge but we slept through it - must have been all those locks!

Leaving the M25 behind.

Some lovely big houses and gardens 

What's going on at The Grove.

It's the British Masters this week!

Through Iron Bridge Lock on the edge of Cassiobury Park. 

Not quite Boaty McBoat Face!

Towpath Tea Party!

Very clever - tie yourself on!

We only shared one lock with this young couple before their engine overheated so they had to pull over.

Interesting mushrooms!

The miniature canal at Rickmansworth. 

That teddy is still hanging around!

And the boat with the car attached is still there.

Canalside cottages.

The crocodile is still at Black Jack's Lock.

I've never noticed the pillbox in the garden before.

Going down!

You can just about see the rainbow after our downpour. 

Somewhere near Heathrow.

Mooring up at Bulls Bridge Junction.
