Day 21: Waiting for the Tide

March- Salter's Lode, via lunch at Upwell

Not a great deal to say, really. We had a nice lie-in- the first for ages, and soon were chugging towards Salter's Lode and the exit from the Middle Level. We decided to stop for a late lunch in Upwell on the visitor staithe, and headed off in the late afternoon. It's busy here at the lock, there are 6 boats including us waiting to go through tomorrow from 10:30 onwards when the tide allows. We're moored on the offside on a steep bank with the ladder out, as there's no space on the landing stages- although there would be if one of the two cruisers on them moved up and shared a bollard...

Off with the tide tomorrow morning, then down the Relief Channel to Downham Market to explore. I've only ever visited the town in sad circumstances, in the pouring rain, but hopefully will be able to have a much better explore and poke around.

  1. Just back from being away camping with our Grandson, catching up on your blog and amazed you are almost home already! I have to hand it to you, you 2 certainly clock up the miles! It looks like you've had a good trip, enjoy the last few days. Pity we missed you while you were near us.
