July 8th 2011 Back to Mercia Marina

Another very wet morning as we slipped the moorings at Branston water park for our run up to Willington. The rain was a bit persistant as we made good headway spotting another famous bloggers boat at Horninglow basin in the shape of narrowboat Granny Buttons. With the last lock of the day at Burton done the clouds abaited and the sun came out. It was around 12:30 when we turned off the Trent and Mersey canal and into Mercia Marina.  Soon Shell Bell was moored at the pontoon and the rest of the day was spent stowing stuff away and trying to book train tickets on line for our trip back to Bungay on Saturday.
