Lots of weather!

Wednesday was wet and chilly. Autumn was certainly here. The rain had stopped by 9:00, but we'd had a bad night because of my cold, so we weren't in a hurry to move on. When we did, it started to rain again within half an hour, and carried on like that, on and off. We locked our way up the Lapworth flight - 11 locks in 2 miles - and it was raining hard by the time we got to the top.

We turned right out of Kingswood Junction and moored for lunch in the Lapworth Link.

When the rain cleared - we were considering staying there for the rest of the day and the night - we carried on back onto the Grand Union, stopping between bridges 62 and 61 for the night, close to Foxwood Aqueduct.

Now the heavens opened, and there was thunder and lightning - very impressive, and not something we'd seen for a long time. Needless to say, the skies were clear and sunny by 5:00pm!
