Christmas mooring

We left our mooring at Willowbank yesterday morning and were soon through the only lock of the day at Denham Deep

 … where the River Colne passes under the canal
 … and where the Grand Union Canal is as clear as crystal and not very deep at all!
 Moored yachts over the lake at Denham Country Park
 … and the sprawling marina
… under threat from HS2
We’re heading for Harefield Marina, the entrance to which is somewhere up there before the bridge and lock

Marina entrance negotiated, payed our dues and filled with water we make our way to our allocated mooring
 In places there is no physical barrier between the marina and the canal
… and parts of the marina structure is in a very sorry state but I suppose the threat of HS2 prevents management from all but essential maintenance.
It’s a big marina … I think there’s a space on the pontoon ahead
 … that’s it for us with electricity available too
Once the rear cover is up we can relax
 … and it didn’t take Molly long to get comfy - talk about a dog’s life!
… and to round off a good day, yet another stunning sunset.
