Hilary headed down to the facilities just before 8am and I said don't rush as there was no sign from the boat next door. No sooner had they gone than it was all action, so Sweet Harmony! headed off to prepare the locks for the 8.30am start. Meanwhile no sign of Hilary! She arrived at the run after noticing that she could see only one mast at the pontoon. She had been waylaid by a couple of residents feeding red wild red squirrels, which she saw. I was very envious. Still we had to get on and catch the others. As it turned out we had to wait for the lock keeper to arrive to start us off.
|In the lock|
|Mike and his boat|
Underway again we leapt down the lock stairs and arrived very quickly in the Crinan basin where we said goodbye to our new friends as they went on through the sea lock and continued on to Oban.
|Missing you already!|
Leaving us snugly tied up in the Basin.
We had the rest of the day to ourselves and went for a walk. More later.
