Just a little way today…

This morning we left our moorings near Pulteney weir and made the short trip up Bath Locks to moor again at the top, near the Sydney Gardens Tunnel.  We turned the boats in front of the weir, and then reversed up as close as we dare, just for the hell of it!  After this trip, I don’t think any of us will be frightened of weirs ever again.

 SDC10926I had a little rest today, courtesy of Karen and Ian’s soon-to-be son-in-law, Jason, who took my place working the locks, so I was able to take photos inside the deepest lock on the system – 19ft 5in!

 SDC10927It’s a long way up!

We may move on a little way to Bathampton tomorrow, or we may stay here another night, we will decide in the morning.  We still have views of Bath, and it would only take us 15 minutes to walk back to the city, but it seems a world away from the bustle of the centre.
