Its our turn to be on Amyjo this weekend so we decided to go to new waters before we turn for home in a few weeks time.
We arrived last night about 8.30am and enjoyed the warm if humid evening. There was not a breath of wind and the marina surprisingly quiet
We watered and got underway at 9am which is not bad for us. Turning left out of the marina we cruised through the familiar wet Crick tunnel out into a dull cloudy sky. A few splatters of rain appeared but not enough to get us wet.
Another surprise was there was only one boat ahead of us to go down the Watford locks so we only waited a short while. The couple ahead of us were clearly new boaters as neither had a clue what to do. With the help of the lockie and Chris they soon got the hang of it and were on their way.
