Wrenbury to Halfway between Burland & Hurleston

Burland-Hurlseston

A very dull and overcast morning’s journey to a 48hour mooring between Lee’s Bridge No.4 and Martin’s Bridge No.3 halfway between Burland and Hurleston. Wrenbury church as seen from the canal.

Whilst we were moored at Marbury for the Jubilee weekend, we were unable to get an internet connection. On the Monday we went for lunch at The Swan, and then joined in with the Jubilee Tea Party on the green in front of the pub, which was provided by the pub for the villagers. We were made most welcome. Even the village telephone kiosk had bunting on it.

Tables all set out ready on the green in front of the Mere.

Well done to Sally & Jonathon for such an amazing spread which was enjoyed by all. Plates of sandwiches kept coming out from the pub to top up what was already out. I shouldn’t have had that sticky toffee pudding with my lunch, I just didn’t have room for more than a couple of sandwiches and an iced bun.

Whilst moored at Marbury, we started to paint the inside of Hadar as the weather outside was too naff for painting the outside. The main target was the painted walls and ceiling in the galley and saloon, which had to be stripped all all the photos and fittings.

Although we have kept the saloon walls as white, we have done the galley walls in a very pale green, which looks a lot warmer now and not so clinical.
