Friday 5th August, 2016 in Stone.
A lovely clear morning. M sat on the stern deck with her morning cup of tea and watched a hot air balloon drift slowly by in the still air.
Anyway, the volunteers were kind enough to help us through the lock, the first of the day.
The last time we were there, R had ordered a "Chocolate Bomb" only to be told that, sadly, they were sold out. This time he was not disappointed! He declared it to be delicious.
We had an absolutely super time with the three of them. They appeared to enjoy their first ever narrowboat trip and we were blessed with perfect weather. Geraldine and Rob are particularly keen to join us again if we go to Liverpool - so we shall let them know when we are likely to be there.
Today: 4 miles, 8 locks and 4.3 hours.
Trip: 215 miles, 144 locks and 157.1 hours.
