A fuel top-up before moving up to the Farm Shop

Rain overnight had cleared by this morning, but we still had a brisk breeze to contend with as we moved off this morning. Ten minutes later we were stopped again, this time on the dock outside Trinity Marina.
Sixty-odd litres of diesel, a gas bottle and a bag of smokeless (you never know…) later, we set off again, leaving Hinckley behind. We’ll be back next Friday, we’ve a weekend berth booked in the marina.

We pulled in just short of Bridge 23.
The farm shop here is small but has a fair selection of fresh veg and meats. They’ve also branched out into camping and caravanning, too. I got a bit of veg, a cake and some ice-cream for pudding.

We’ll be staying here tomorrow, moving on a bit on Monday.
