|Waiting for crew in Nottingham. Will that warehouse behind be repainted soon?!|
The rest of the Trent passage was easy - and I even got to like it after my initial anxiety about being out on deep, fast-flowing water had worn off! We had to wait at Holme Lock because, as the locky explained, he didn't know we were coming (we should have rung him from Nottingham). After that we were "in the system" and all following locks were ready and waiting for us.
