Deptmore To Radford Bank- Shopping In Stafford Again

Today Ben and I walked to Radford Bank while Eric steered the boat. Once there we moored up and caught a bus into Stafford while Ben looked after the boat. It was good to be in civilisation for a change and do a bit of shopping......yes this time they had knickers in my  size! We bought Ben a rope tug with a ball on but the ball was soon shredded leaving the rope for him to play tug and chew. Lunch was courtesy of Greg's while we sat on a wall as all the seats were full.

We sampled the Carvery at 'Radford Bank Inn' for tea with a roast at £3.69 each  and a no fuss pay for the meal and take your ticket to the Carvery there was no waiting involved. Excellent value and no dishes to do either. Back on the boat after a few beers we had a lazy evening ...if you don't count playing ball with the dog.
