Quiet week-end.

Still moored at Devizes
401 locks, 544½ miles, 17 Tunnels, 13 swing bridges and 9 lift bridges since Nov 2006

After a laid back start to the day we wandered into town to check out a chandlery, a fishing tackle shop and a local market. On the way into town we had a look at the Kennet & Avon Trust museum and shop on the wharf opposite where we are moored. We will go back tomorrow for a more in depth visit.
Devizes is an old town and even the modern supermarkets are tastefully placed in old buildings.

After lunch we wandered along the towpath to have a look at the locks ahead of us and see what lay in store. Even though the weather was overcast the view from the top of the lock flight was very impressive.
