The plan for the day was an 8am start as it would only take us about 45 minutes to reach the top of the Foxton flight. This went according to plan and along the way we dumped the remainder of the possibly contaminated water we had picked up at Watford and Stowehill. The problem was that upon arrival at the water points at the top of the flight we found 2 Canaltime boats moored up with all their curtains drawn.We pulled in front and behind these boats and as we went past them, in very clear loud voices let these people know that it was time to get up and MOVE. Luckily our hoses reached our boats but of course we were actually on the lock moorings which caused queuing
We will now spend the rest of the week-end here and carry on moving North on Monday.
