Day 14- Travelling

IRYS

I helped dad do the first lock of the day, it was called Actons Lock.

I got to walk across the lock gates, it was scary but exciting.  The lock was deep and rough and if you fell in you weren’t coming out.

When I was across I held our rope to stop the boat bashing against the wall of the lock.  When I’m holding the rope I take in the slack as the boat comes up.

We are now moored up by the Islington  Tunnnel.
