Upton to Gloucester

Miles 19.2 Locks 2 Days 2
It rained all day at Upton yesterday so we decided to leave the boat on the floating pontoon and go to Worcester by bus. We had a look round and returned to the boat and had another "Make and Mend" afternoon. This morning it was still raining and after calling the lock keeper at Upper Lode to check that a run down to Gloucester was still ok with the higher water levels and flow, we set off. By the time we reached Upper Lode the rain had stopped and by the time we arrived in Gloucester, just after 1pm, the sun was out. We went straight into the lock - no hanging onto chains as we had done on our two previous visits. We moored on the finger pontoons just south of the lock and had a short stroll around the shops. Just as we got back to the boat it started to rain again, a least it was easy to put the covers on.

For any Canalworld followers we did manage to catch p withe the Joneses on nb Keeping Up but we couldn't keep up as they had left by the time we got back from the shops before we could go over and have a chat. Still I think the have headed South so we will probably see them later this week.
