Never say never!

... if we had got through our next lock is automatic into the embranchment to Nevers.

We arrived at 2.30 for the Nevers embranchment to find the lights switched off but a boat coming out. John made a phone call to the tourist office which was the only telephone number around (not even a tannoy in the lock) and they said it would open at 3pm.
