We are back afloat.

Hi There, back from our trip up north, Lots of trains and buses. It was nice to see everybody before we head south. Still having to take things a little slowly after the op, still quite sore.

We Collected the boat last night and spent the night at Willington, then this morning we traveled up to Shobnal Marina where we pumped out and bought gas and an anchor. We had to have the anchor for when we get on the Thames.

Only one lock on this stretch and had some help, also had some help swapping the gas bottles over, much too heavy for me to lift. Moored tonight at a mooring just before Branston Lock, If you cut through the industrial estate you come to a large Morrisons supermarket, we needed this as the cupboard was very bare.

Tomorrow we move to Barton so that on Monday we can collect three months prescriptions for the time we are away from the area.
