I did a bit of shopping at the new Co-op near Bridge 90, then we moved down to the junction to fill with water and empty a loo.
It was busy there, we had to queue to get onto the water point, then we had visitors while we were filling.
“Those big noisy things might look scary, but if you go towards them and quack, food appears….”
We swung out onto the junction in front of The Swan, then pulled onto the fuel barge at Fradley Marine Services for diesel. Ouch. 97 pence per litre. That’s the domestic rate. Propulsion fuel comes in at £1.40. Whoever said boating was cheap?
We met the 2 locks up to Shadehouse nicely. Middle Lock was empty and we just had a couple of minutes to wait for a boat to drop down Shadehouse Lock.
We pulled in on the one available slot on the moorings above the lock at around 13:00. This’ll do us till Monday now.
Still, at least it's been a nice day.
Busy day tomorrow. I’ll be up early for my morning run, then take meg out before settling down to watch the London Marathon. Then I’ll watch the replay of the Chinese Grand Prix in the afternoon. All go isn’t it!
