Bye bye Semington, hello Devizes

Our stay at Semington has come to an end. We need to move east. The first night we spent at Seend, opposite the Barge Inn, where I sampled some of the Wadworth ales. You can order 1/3rd of a pint of 3 different ales then have a pint of the one you like best. Good idea.

Friday - leaving Seend going towards Sells Green

A bumper crop of haws
 Friday night we stopped at the bottom of the Caen Hill lock flight so that we were ready to ascend when Heather and Mum arrived to help. We had met up with 'April Rose' as we came up the flight from Foxhangers. They were just ahead of us, waiting for their extended family to arrive, so there would be plenty of help...
On our way up...

A welcome sight - the little café - means you're nearly there.

Looking back down the hill.

Smiling back at the photographers.
With all the help, we did it in the record (for us) time of two and a quarter hours. We stopped at the top for lunch, then leisurely moved on to Devizes Wharf for the night. We went to 'Spoons' in Devizes for our evening meal. So we are now on the long pound for at least six weeks because the Wootton Rivers locks will be closed for maintenance until the end of November.
