It´s the principle that counts

Says she sarcastically to BW, they bang on about things improving NOW when they haven’t even got their house in order yet…
 
This is a beautiful canal, but we also pay for a free obstacle course at no extra charge:
 
Paddle gear up…
 
005
 
Massive floating reed bed with 6 foot long roots in the way below…
 
008 
 
Sign next to this lock…

I mean you really couldn’t make this stuff up could you? As for have I shut up? Well…
 
Another lock, another gate in pristine condition…

And another one further up…
 
066

A lock arm specially designed (again) for hand or even bum splinters…

Designed to rip the blacking off any boat that attempts to moor up there…

093
 
094
 
Then there’s those pilings, deteriorated further since last time we were here…
 
091
 
And at the end of the day, one lonely little weed planted in concrete, aww…
 
076
 
Do you think it makes a statement…?
