Going up


Since the basin on this lift lock is somewhat closed, it's hard to get a good impression of how far up we actually were. But I tried!


Here's a look over the treetops.


And now the gates are opening at the top of the lock. We sailed down a little ways and looked around before turning around and doing it all again. It was a nice way to spend an afternoon and I'd love to come back when the new lock is built to give it a test whirl as well!

It's finally Friday. I hope you've got some nice plans for the weekend. The weather is supposed to be nice, so I'll probably be on the golf course. Hope your skies are blue too - you can see more at Skywatch.

  10. I am going out early tomorrow for a game of golf before the heat and humidity rise. There are supposed to be thunderstorms in the afternoon. Is there much golf in Germany?
