Been a busy week getting to Mercia Marina to meet up with friends Bex and Craig for a few days, who have hired a boat from Shakespeare Line.
Moored at Mercia Marina.
As we knew we would be here for most of the day, we ordered Oscar some more dog food from Oscar Pet Foods to be delivered to the boat, it arrived at 3.30pm just as Bex and Craig were ready to leave after having instructions on how to use their boat.
We travelled towards Burton on Trent, with James helping them on the boat in front of ours! (Only one minor bump – from another novice hirer!)
We moored up at the Bridge Inn near Branston, where we had visited 3 years ago, and had a lovely Italian Meal. The new owners have been there for seven months and it seems even better now than it was previously.
Doug, Bex and Craig waiting, expectantly, for dinner.
