We made our way down from Barlaston to Stone this morning and are now moored up on the Town moorings. Lunch in The Star, two meals for £8, a result. We had called into Stone Boat Building to buy a couple of bags of coal and another vacuum cassette for the loo. We are now have three cassettes aboard so that safely takes us to twelve days before we need a sanitation point. Well that's enough of that.. Moving quickly on.
Streethay are coming out to see Caxton again on Wednesday to discuss dinette options and costs? We have had the costing for the bow stretch and have tentatively agreed to that but we need to bottom the remaining costs and then pin them down to a timeslot. Maybe Wednesday's meeting will provide some clarity. There again, maybe not.
