It rained on and off, but from about half way down, it rained hard, very hard, very, very hard! We were all soaked through by the time we got to the bottom. We drove on past the Saltisford Arm, moored, had a hot shower, put on dry clothes, and enjoyed an indulgent fry-up for lunch! The descent had taken us three hours again, made quicker and all the more enjoyable by the couple on NB Bascote.
We stayed where we were moored for the rest of the day and the night, though the rain had stopped and the sun come out as soon as we'd moored! My cold hadn't gone, but thankfully I was well enough to have done the locks and endured the rain.
