Atherstone Locks In The Rain

Today we had a nice dry walk until I took off my waterproof trousers and then it emptied down. Working down the eleven locks and walking between the locks with Ben the dog I got progressively wetter, but with a queue of boats coming up we had every lock open and ready for us so it wasn't so bad after all. As we were the only boat going down, those going up had to empty locks to use them and the pounds of the upper locks were suffering low water levels.

Finally back on the boat the soggy gear was removed and I got some dry stuff on, Ben was lucky he had a rub down with a towel. I didn't take any photos in the rain and today we were glad to stop near Bridge 50 before Polesworth. Now of course it will stop raining!
