And so after a long flight - 12+ hours - we arrived in Paris, grabbed a quick drink and then on to Birmingham. Unfortunately, Pat's suitcase decided to stop off in Paris but will hopefully be delivered tomorrow!

Although we wanted to share the locks, experience has shown that most boats pause here for fuel, groceries or chandlery before going up the locks, so we went up the first lock with a plan to wait at the second one if the boat came onto the lock bollards.
