Etruria - Caldon Canal
Dislike these locks, the first two are dark, damp and slippery (not helped by being joined by a bloke with a can of beer and shouting on his telephone). The locks are all very deep, and then the last three have heavy paddle gear (you always know when you are near a CRT yard.)
The top lock paddles made a really big vortex when both top paddles were opened.
We have only been hit once by a Black Prince boat (so far), as there has only been one going past, that's 100%. They come out of the marina with a member of staff to show them the ropes and he then get's straight off. No help through their first lock or anything.
Tomorrow I have the 2 stair lock first thing. Great!
Tie a yellow ribbon..... I Cuttlebugged a piece of white card and stuck the piece of stick to one side. I made 2 small holes near the top and threaded the yellow ribbon through and tied it in a knot. Then the panel was stuck down onto a yellow card blank.
The sentiment was done on the computer and matted onto more yellow card.
