The Cruise of the Dondevoy

    


I met my parents just after ten o'clock, and after a pint at the pub, we set out on a drive through the neighbouring countryside. We spent a pleasant day together, seeing the Waterways Museum, and quite a bit of the canal. My parents and Sarah camped beside the canal a little way down, and I walked back to the boat. Some novice had obviously left the paddles on the gates open, for water was pouring over one lock, and the pound above the next lock was nearly dry. However, someone was already working to set things right, so we let it well alone.
