Bridge 88 to Rugby

Rugby

A slightly earlier start this morning, at 7:40am, and soon we were working our way down Hillmorton locks. at the middle pair BW staff were working on repairing the gates on lock 4, on the towpath side. We know most of the staff working there, and had a quick chat with them before proceeding. Steve Morgan was there, and it was a golden opportunity to thank him personally for obtaining the required permission for locating our post-box at Union Wharf.

We arrived and moored up at Broughton Park, where “Gerald No.13” was moored, and as we were tying up, Roy and Thomas came along and we had a good natter. Jo and I then set off to do some shopping at Maplins (two 3.5mm plugs and in-line sockets for the small solar panels which power the led lights in the cabins which we previously bought at the same store at the end of last year), Currys & PC World, (32Gb USB Stick for backing up our ever increasing stock of photos) and Pets at Home (new harness for Marmite, hers has gone missing). We also had lunch at Pizza Hut, their buffet lunch, all you can eat for £6.99 each, and very yummy it was too.

We returned to the boat with our shopping, and the clothes we had stripped off as the air temperature rose. We had a coffee before topping up with food shopping at Tescos. We bumped into Roy again, inside Tescos.
