Thanks INFP, for the suggestion of a Pint (I added the Pie, I was getting hungry by the time they got through the lock!) Maybe I should have called it “Zen in the art of Long-Boating”, it is a slow process and hopefully relaxing way to travel They will have many locks to get through on their way westwards (Ho!).





A pie and a pint at the next pub! Call it Zen in the art of long-boating.
