At Tixall Wide


We're sitting tight enjoying the peace and quiet of Tixall Wide. The weather has been variable with blue skies and sunshine but  we've also had rain, hail stones and wind as well as more sunshine. Just half a dozen boats moored here and just four moored at Great Haywood at the beginning of the week but it's filling up at Great Haywood today.


Last night the rain hammered on the roof for most of the night but we had a lovely sunny afternoon. I caught the bus from Great Haywood into Stafford for a little retail therapy while Eric looked after Ben after I'd taken him for a walk of course. The bus service is hourly, so you need to plan which bus you're getting back as there's times when the next bus is more than a hour apart.


Tomorrow we need to top up with water so we need to move down to Great Haywood, empty the cassettes and get rid of the accumulated rubbish. I hope it manages  to stay dry for an hour!
