|Looking up the Frankton Locks|
We'd booked a passage down Frankton Locks for today so as we wouldn't be moving until about 12 o'clock Ben and I went for a walk down the locks. We only got as far as Graham Palmer Lock before Ben decided he wasn't going any further. I sat at a picnic bench and phoned by dad for a chat while Ben waited by the lock. We got back to the boat just before the rain came down. About 11.30am the lock keeper was ready for us to go down the staircase locks. Colin the usual lock keeper is not well so he's not working at the moment.......I hope he gets well soon.

We were soon down the four locks and we continued on our way to the Graham Palmer Lock and worked through it. Continuing on our travels we spotted a familiar boat coming towards us in the form of NB Blue Diamond with Bernie and Maggie on board. A little later we met NB Liberty Belle with Angela and Trevor onboard and I managed to get a photograph.

We cruised as far as Aston Locks and moored up after the first lock. It's been a cold day today so the fire was soon lit to dry off our wet coats. We've had sunshine and heavy rain with some lovely rainbows and it's lovely and peaceful down on the Monty.
