Wednesday and Thursday nights:
We were moored at Kegworth Shallow Lock for two nights as it persisted down with rain one day and we weren't in the frame of mind to get soaked.
The lock is left open except during flood conditions. In the dark of the evening I noticed white mounds on the water and thought it was swans. But it is foam. I had to ask Mick what it was - my imagination went to effluent from a factory ... Apparently the foam is created as the water goes over the many weirs. It looks quite white on the water but is a bit beige when it dries on the boat - ooky.
|Bubble bath in the lock ;-)|
|Lovely sunny day, still water - what could be better?|
|Autumn colours starting to appear.|
|The boffin is checking something out.|
|Had to have the sunglasses on|
|Some beautiful properties in this area|
|See? And the front is around to the left, so lovely views both ways of the river and fields on the other side.|
|This boat was moored on the lock landing where there was also this -|
|I am not sure what these people were doing but it looked like the adults and the kids were having fun. as part of the watersport expo.|
|What is this building? It looks like the Michelin Man's play house!|
|This is Toby and his Mum Emma with David. Toby was a star lock wheeler. I mentioned him in yesterday's post. He is cool!|
