Two Down:  One to Go
After the excitement of  Ricky Festival M felt she should spend a month's income at the dentist on Monday.  So this morning we set off up the GU towards HemelHempstead.

We filled up with water before finding a boat to share  Batchworth lock with.  Just round the corner we encountered the first casualty from yesterday's high winds.

Near Hunton Bridge there was another tree down in the canal.
There are a lot of boats on the move today but we seem to have a different one with us at each lock.

As we approached The Grove and the sharp bend just after bridge 165 we found this idiot yogurt pot moored right at the bridge.
Where are the broadobeam boats when you need them? A gentle side-swipe with 30 tons of Dutch barge would have converted this to a neat pile of debris on the towpath.
