Later we took a stroll down to Diglis Locks. A lot of development has been happening here and it all looks a bit too new but its been done sympathetically and I'm sure it will improve with age. (A bit like me really).
I've been collecting wood on the way down and I needed a saw to cut it up with, so into Wickes and picked up a pruning saw which folds up like a very large pocket knife. Lin spotted Staples next door so we went into there for some photo paper for laser printers. You can't use ink jet photo paper in laser printers.
Today we've traveled 6 miles, 13 locks.
All the following pictures are taken with our new Canon Power Shot A470.

Which way shall we go?
The size of these locks is a bit daunting, they're huge.

Tomorrow morning we make passage through these locks onto the River Severn and turn to port (left for you land lubbers) and head for Sharpness. Lin reckons we can get to Gloucester tomorrow. I reckon we can get to Tewkesbury. We'll see.
As an aside, since we've moored here the Police and Ambulances have been up and down the whole time with all sirens blazing. Its now 22:00hrs and they're still wailing on and on. Hope we can sleep tonight, its one of the noisiest places we've moored for a long while.
