Fradley Junction and locks were very busy, but at least the queues meant that there was plenty of help around and I did very little actual lock work. Two volunteer lockies were speeding the traffic up on the top two locks, but there were still half-a-dozen boats waiting to come down at the top. It was while waiting for this lock that I met the first blogger of the day: Stein, the Norwegian captain of "Like Ducks 2 Water"
|Stein. From his tee-shirt a man after my own heart!|
