First in the lock with 2 bridges

Since we didn't manage to get through the last lock into the lake Roxen yesterday, because of the thunderstorm, we wanted to be the first to go through. We had been told yesterday that the most crucial is the window for the train bridge after the lock. Here this bridge only opens, when there is enough time to open and close without interfering with trains. 

All 3 sailboats since then rising water level wasn't so high got into the lock. Quite crammed! 

Also after experiencing 15 lock maneuvers working together as a clockwork by now was different. We only needed to get hold of ropes hanging and hold onto. 

All of us 3 boats managed and also got out under the train bridge. Lucky us!

The biggest surprise this morning was finding the breakfast table set, when getting up at 7 o'clock. The boys don't stop surpring me! Thanks!

    Hey Guys!

    Your adventures with the locks remind me so much of the 91 working locks on the Canal du Midi in the south of France. I had a look at quite a few of them 2 years ago, although from the shore, cycling.

    Keep it up!
