Final weekend at Stone – Part 2
We didn’t really do much at all today. We had a couple of cups of coffee in bed as we waited for the heating to warm the boat through before we eventually got up and got showered. We had a bit of a tidy up in the cratch and Sue set up our table and chairs ready for our maiden cruise in little over a week’s time.
We had lunch on board and then settled down to watch the Liverpool v Chelsea match. We had very little to take to the car when we left at 4.30, we now have everything on board that we need for our trip to Braunston on May 6th.
We have had a weekend trip to Paris planned for a few months now, we fly there next Saturday and return on Monday 5th, a bank holiday and my birthday! The following day, we plan to drive to Braunston and park the car there. We’ll catch a bus into Rugby before getting a train to Stone and then probably travel by taxi to Aston marina. Once there, we won’t be long before we are on our way, heading south on the Trent & Mersey in the direction of Great Haywood.
