The low tide at Salter’s was at 11:45 so it was a late start. It was Paul the lock keeper’s birthday so although he was about because he lives next to the lock it was a relief lockie who worked us through.
It was a very low tide so we had to wait outside the lock on the mud for a while before it was deep enough to go through to Denver. But once there the lock was open ready for us.
We made good progress up to Ely -the river is wide and deep, tying up on the park moorings and going to see a friend for a game of Settlers of Catan followed by a drink at the lovely Liberty Belle micro pub, owned by the same people who run the Lynn Union trip boat.
There wasn’t any Internet signal on the moorings hence the very late post! Today we’re going home….
