With us dog sitting Echo from Sunday for a week, we decided to move on to Shacklestone early this morning before all the moorings were taken up. We had heard on the grapevine that a kiddie event was being held at Shacklestone railway this weekend and expected a lot of boat traffic. So, in the rain, we did the 4 mile journey in about hour and a half and, luckily for us, a hire boat pulled away just as we arrived otherwise we would have struggled. Christine and Kev, as a thank you, will take us to the Rising Sun pub for a meal after dropping off the dog so we expect to stay at least until Monday. Whether the boat roof will be sanded while we are here all depends on wind direction. Im sure other boaters wouldn't want grey roofing dust to drift their way.
