Leaves stop traffic ...

... or delay trains, hinder the infrastructure of any vehicles on the move ...
... including boats on the canal!
We woke this morning to a bright, blustery day with the canal running quite fast and not a leaf in sight on the water .... until .... we ascended Gailey Lock to take advantage of services at the top and could not get out of the lock!  During the windy night leaves had gathered above the top gates and of course once the gates were opened to allow me out the leaves came in ... it certainly took a lot of pulling and pushing from the crew ((my) George and Ann from Moore 2 Life) and a lot of 'chucking back' of the propeller to release me from the clutches of those leaves!
