On our way home.
As of this afternoon, we have left Stockton Marina and are making our way home with our new generator on board. We were fortunate to pair up with another narrowboat Moon Hare to come down the Stockton flight. Our day ended at The Blue Lias, which is our chosen mooring for the night. All moored up, we had a nice pint of Doombar to celebrate the fact that we have a new generator. it is not working yet, because we need the hole drilled in the hull for the raw water cooling system to be connected too and Rob our engineer needs to bleed the system and then hopefully fire her up. After a pint we took a walk around Stockton Reservoir, which was glorious and so quiet.
As a treat we have booked ourselves into The Blue Lias for a meal later. We have often passed the pub, but have never been able to moor up as it has been so busy, so we are making the most of our opportunity with a good mooring, food and drink.
