Baddesley Basin to Rugby Wharf
I feel terribly guilty as as we (well, in one case, I alone) have committed two dreadful solecisms today. Firstly, we came straight out of the basin and into the lock which someone else had just set. Then at Hawkesbury, I was so engrossed in conversation with two lads who were admoring the engine that I forgot to shut the gate of the stoplock behind us. Oh dear oh dear ... sorry everyone. And to anyone else we upset in the course of the journey.
On the plus side, having got over those mortifications, my steering is really getting quite nifty now, and the sun has shone all day (only slightly marred by a brisk wind this morning). The tunnel light and the horn now both work, which is nice.
