The problem with such good weather...

...is that the level of the canals has now reached low, and we are seeing each week a growing list of canal and lock closures.  Boaters who have ventured out of the marina have returned with tales of running aground, of fearing to go through locks, in case they are closed by the time they return, and they become stranded.  Well, we will go for a few days of cruising tomorrow, but we will not aim to venture too far north, because that's where the locks increase in number, and thus the danger.  Our galvanic isolator is fitted, our noisy water pump corrected (it was leaning against the stainless steel water tank, which amplified the sound very effectively), and our water tank filled.  Tomorrow, the cut!  But what a day for hot weather this has been!
