Up The Hurleston Flight

Going up the Hurleston Flight
Today started with a cycle ride from our moorings above Cholmondeston Lock to Hurleston Junction  with Ben the dog. The locks were very busy but nearly all the traffic was going up. At one point there were two boats waiting in the first pound and two boats changing places between the locks......chaos! For a change boaters were helping each other opening a paddle to speed up the climb through the flight.

So we're back on Eric's favourite canal on the first day of Autumn..........who knows what this winter will throw at us? It's a pity we still don't know about winter moorings as BW in their wisdom are making us wait until early October. This is gives us little time to make alternative arrangements.
