The melting snow put a lot of water into the Cam today. I’ve never seen Jesus Lock so full. There was only a 0.5 metre difference between above and below the lock gates.
As a kayakist in my past, I used to pray (figuratively speaking) for days like this. Seeing a river in spate used to get me excited, and watching the normally placid Cam, look ever so slightly turbulent was very reminiscent of that.
Here’s looking downstream. Note the boats alongside the flooded banks.
