That meant an earlier stop than planned here at Weybridge, rather close to the road, but it'll do. We are also on a good bank edge so Tacet has been washed down and polished this afternoon bringing back her lovely shine, on one side anyway. No tellings when the other side will get done.
Our trip on the Basingstoke Canal was short and sweet, it is only open to boats up to Brookwood, and the canal ranger follows you up and down caulking the top gates behind you to stop leaking. We were the only boat on the canal, moving that is and the ranger commented that 'nobody wants to come up here.' It's hardly surprising when you have to book to use the locks, can't go at weekends, pay £12 a day, and can only go 6 or 7 miles with no services.
It's been a bit of a wet trip, heavy showers but with sunshine in between, so I don't seem to have many photos...

Way up there.
And our views this morning at Brookwood....
And a few moments ago at Weybridge...
