The trip thus far as been quite nice - mainly bright days, chatty folks along the way and us taking turns being skipper.
We left Leeds Monday afternoon as we were booked in for Forge & Newley locks 9am Tuesday morning...
Having already decided to Moor outside Kirkstall Brewery Halls of residence we sort of expected a bit of noise - we hadn't quite bargained for a combination of Christmas parties & football on top of the already exuberant youth contained within... Ergo, it was about 3am before things quietened down. Not the end of the world but it did feel a long night.
We got our own back though at 7am when we started up and headed up to Kirkstall lock! - our revenge was short-lived though as we naively thought that it was only Forge/Newlay that were locked... hence we ended up sitting in Kirkstall lock until 9 am when CRT came to unlock it.
