22nd May 2011 Shell Bell has a new hose pipe

More expense today. Children, your inheritence is under threat!!! Ha Ha.  When we bought Shell Bell Norwyn bought a bargain of a hose on ebay. He should have heeded Kirsty’s advice. “buy cheap, buy twice” for that is exactly what has happened.  The hose got twisted and finally split on us so that when we took on water we were also subjected to a cold shower. Some people passing by also had this pleasure.

So as we left Branston we called into Shobnall marina and bought a new, flat hose, 20metres long; just what we need.  We continued on to Horninglow basin to take on water. Here Captain Norwyn had to perform a very tricky turn. He 

New hose this is what you said we should get Marcus

The mural at Horninglow

managed perfectly.  Getting out was just as difficult but no problem.  At Horninglow basin there is a huge canal mural.

We then headed for Stretton where we took a walk into the village and will return tomorrow to shop.

Alas we noticed that we had lost a fender – more expense boys!!!
