No water in Bath!
8am and it was time to move down the last 6 locks before the K & A would join the River Avon proper. Well, that was the plan, however, someone or something had decided to pull the plug out of the pound below the second lock - it was just a muddy puddle! But brave Peter leapt to the challenge; he grabbed his bike and whizzed down the towpath to inspect the damage then pedalled furiously back up to put his plan into action. 'Open the paddles' was his cry so that's we did and within the hour the muddy puddle was restored and Wren and the other boats could continue descending the flight, including the Bath Deep Lock at 19 feet deep! (The second deepest on the canal network)
The weather improved on yesterday and the trip up the River Avon towards Bristol was delightful, and, made more so when a Kingfisher was sighted. But Wren was due for a few days rest at Keynsham while Peter and Claire would head back to Ellesmere for some gardening, laundry, music and, in Peter's case, the annual Bishop's Castle Triathlon. Life is good!
