Good progress

Even though I wasn't feeling brilliant we made good progress today.

We were joined by Liz and Steve aboard RiverNile which made the locks easier. Liz and I walked between locks while Ray and Steve cruised. The weather was kind and the rain held off. They were heading for Tring as Liz has to travel into London tomorrow so we parted company before Marsworth Locks.

I had forgotten how many moored boats there are when you get this far south, I suppose a lot of people are mooring up for the winter or only travelling the minimum now. We managed to find a mooring spot just before the first Marsworth Lock.

Today's journey 3.3 miles, 7 locks and 1 swing bridge

So far this year we have travelled 436.5 miles, 394 locks, 2 swing bridges, 34 lift bridges and 15 tunnels

Since Ray retired we have travelled 1167.2 miles, 1041 locks, 57 swing bridges, 38 lift bridges and 40 tunnels
