Homeward Bound Day 8.
If you read yesterday's post, you will know we spent the evening at The Blue Lias Inn at the bottom of the Stockton flight. The moorings on the inn side are for patrons only, so we had our evening meal and a pint in the inn. It was a lovely meal and a cool pint to wash down a lasagna and for pudding Honeycombe Cheesecake. This woman knows how to live the high life. What was a little disconcerting was the fact they had been putting up their Christmas decorations up. The entrance hall was like Santa's grotto. The countdown on their Christmas clock said 63 days arghhhh. I am personally one of those people who thinks nothing to do with Christmas should start until December 1st. But for businesses they all have to get ahead of the competition. Anyway we had a lovely time, before retiring back to the boat for coffee and putting our feet up.
This morning we left our Inn mooring at 8.35am along with NB Morpheus, who we shared the first couple of locks of the day at Long Itchington.
Pop back soon xx
