On The Trent And Mersey Canal.....Towards Stone

A nice quiet spot near Burston

We decided not to stay another night at Tixall Wide because Ben was finding it difficult to get on and off the boat as the towpath is low. A good place to touch up the battered rubbing strips on one side at least because we won't have a towpath on this side for a while.

Getting to the services at Great Haywood at the junction was the usual chaos so we had to queue. We really needed to get rid of the rubbish and recycling. I don't know why I bother to separate recycling as there was nowhere for it to go. Some places you can recycle but it's not easy to find room to keep it on a boat.

A right turn at the junction and we're heading towards Stone with a few stops on the way. By the number of boats that have passed up today we'll be lucky to find a space tomorrow.
