Friday 7th August Ardfern to Crinan Canal
Turned out to be a lovely afternoon as we went into the Crinan. I’m so glad they sent me down to the cabin. The noise was horrendous as they filled the sea lock with water. Very scary and Dad put Mum on the bow line right in the path of all that water. Nice one, Dad.
He was a bit worried that Mum wouldn’t manage the locks but luckily she met a nice old fella, who obviously knew his stuff, and showed her the right way to do it. I am very proud of Mum she managed all but four locks on her own. (There’s 15 of them with only three manned).
