Quote of the day No 254

Saturday 3 December 2016

The worst experience we ever had with gongoozlers took place at the wide lock linking the southern Stratford Canal with the River Avon, Try to imagine the lock, situated in Shakespeare Gardens and close to the Memorial Theatre.

It was August bank holiday (we should have known better) and as Warwickshire Lad entered the lock to drop down onto the river, it was immediately surrounded by every nationality under the sun. Ciné cameras whirred; Instamatics clicked; everyone jostled to get a better view. A group of young American girls, enraptured by our ‘cute lil dawg’ who was trotting up and down the cabin roof, temptingly held out a handful of peanuts (to which she was addicted). With one mighty leap, she sailed off the roof, gulped the peanuts and was lost in the crowd. It was a long worrying time before we found her, having had to refill the lock and reverse back into the canal basin.
