This morning we thought we'do try our luck and see if we could moor up at Radford Bank as I wanted to go shopping . For the last three weeks I've missed having a look around the shops. Today I discovered a new M&S in Stafford so I bought a couple of T shirts and a new pair of long shorts to replace my tatty ones.
Of course it was raining as Ben and I walked down to Deptmore Lock. Just one lock to work through today . We ended up mooring on pins before the Visitor Moorings as they were full. OK as long as the boats went past fairly slowly. Eric did have to knock them back in a few times as the ground was fairly soft.
Tomorrow we're going to take Ben for a walk on a footpath which comes out opposite B&Q as we need a few bits and pieces. We've got a leak around a window frame where the screw needs replacing as it couldn't be tightened up. It's actually snapped in the hole and was kept in by a blob of silicon so needs drilling out to be replaced.
After that I need some food shopping and Aldi is very close to the canal so that's where I'll be shopping. Then we're off cruising as far as Tixall Wide to enjoy peace and quiet.
