It is a flight of six locks, double width now that we are onto the main line of the Grand Union. Despite the tales from the crew of the boat we met at the top lock - coming up as we were about to descend - who had just taken nearly three hours to do the flight, we went down at a good speed. We went in tandem with an elderly couple celebrating their Golden Wedding Anniversary. She was at the helm, and not very experienced at the job, so it was quite a lot of fun!
Arriving in Braunston, we passed Roy's workshop where Kantara will have to be on Monday morning, and carried on into the countryside, where we moored and had a very late lunch. This is where we will spend tomorrow.
It has rained several times, heavy showers, since we arrived. And the sunset was amazing.
