In Convoy on the Trent & Mersey

Monday's weather was bright but it but windy. The Marks arrived for lunch at Aston Marina, sourced from the farm shop, and then drove up to Stone to pick up their boat. We left Aston to travel to Stone by boat, winding just below Star Lock and moored up on the half-hour mooring waiting for David & Rosemary to make their way down the flight. They didn't appear for some time so we walked up to find them just taking over NB Ginette and receiving instruction.

Locking Instructions at Stone

We both made our way south, passed through Aston Lock where there was a small queue and moored up near Burston. We walked into the village and had dinner at The Greyhound - good value food.
