Biggles The Lock Keeper

Wednesday morning, and after the first mate had another session at Waitrose and the charity shops, we left the delights of Godalming behind, passed back through Farncombe Boatyard without any more damage to the credit cards, and ended up mooring near the Wey and Arun junction at Shalford, exactly where we moored the previous weekend. But pointing the other way, of course – makes all the difference!

The Captain normally spends his time asleep while we’re cruising, but we think watching Prunella Scales on TV had shamed him into helping out at St. Catherine’s Lock, on the way into Guildford. The lovely hot sunny day may also have had something to do with it.

Helping with the lockI'll go and open the other gate

And now I'll just tend that rope
