What a Lark on its early morning watering chore
And he's off
At the first lock of the day we came across a Father and Son crew taking their boat to Pillings Lock, and we followed them all the way the Kings lock and had to reverse every single lock. There was no traffic coming in our direction in fact things are very quiet on these waters. We soon got into a nice rhythm, with me going ahead and setting the locks and Lisa and daughter Verity seeing the two boats through.

Double locks with the requisite number of boats, i.e. two, are just soooo much easier.
Once through Kings Lock we moored up and throughout the rest of the afternoon were joined by a number of other boats until all the available spaces were taken. The plan the next day was to slip into Leicester and spend most of the day sightseeing, and shopping and maybe a curry in the evening...
