Eventful Morning.

3.4 miles & 5 locks in 2hrs 25mins
Marmite was keeping watch this morning when I took Paddy out for his walk.

Eventful morning to say the least. We left our peaceful over night mooring at 9.20 am to start the decent of Knowle Locks.
It was such a still morning, there was not a breath of wind to be had. We stopped at the sanitary station to empty the cassette and get rid of rubbish, before I set the first two locks, which went fine.
We got through lock two, discovered that two hire boats who had come up the Knowle locks before us had managed to drain one of the pounds on the Knowle flight of locks, but it did expose the remains of one of the old narrow locks, which is normally hidden.
We then met a boat coming up through the bottom lock, who were lock virgins and it showed, so I gave them a swift lesson on how to work locks.The worrying thing was the woman told me they had bought the boat four days ago and they had almost burnt the boat down already, scary really.
Another stunning show of colours.
We passed the Black Buoy Inn which looks nice. We then met a Braunston hire boat, who well and truly clobbered us, they did nothing to try and avoid us. We are now moored opposite the The Navigation, Kingswood.
