Bank Holiday Mayhem

We moved today, down New Marton Locks to moor up with Jill and Allen on "Rough Grazing".

The canal is extremely busy with hire boats, almost all going up the locks towards Llangollen. They've been coming in convoys of 4 - 5 at a time and almost all were speeding. One hire boat was going so fast he was pushing a huge breaking bow wave and was right up behind the boat in front. They couldn't overtake, although I'm certain he would have tried, as this was just before the locks and there were already 4 boats in front of him queueing .
