Day 52. Pastures Lock to Langley Mill.
We woke this morning to the roar of a train passing by and fog. We both slept incredibly well, which was no surprise having done the locks yesterday, which were challenging at times due to the weight of the gates. I definitely need to eat more Spinach or Weetabix. The gates are very much like the Grand Union Gates near us, but heavier.
We left our overnight mooring at 9.20am, I think much to annoyance of the fisherman, who had been fishing at the lock mouth with his camera going. After went went past him, he decided to pack up and move.
Irene and Ian on FreeSpirit. They heard us coming, before they saw us. They very kindly helped us up through the top lock and we are now moored alongside them for a day or two.
Reverie canal trading co, working on their butty Lyra. It was lovely to catch up with them both and we will see them again whilst we are here. Tonight we are eating out, which I know for a fact I deserve having worked the locks today. I will have muscles on muscles soon.
Pop back soon xx
