Wednesday 13th January 2010

The temperature yesterday stayed above freezing and the snow thawed from the pontoons, but when we stepped out of the boat this morning there was a covering of about 1" of fresh snow.
We set out on a walk with Molly, out of the marina, down the towpath, over Shugborough bridge, past Shugborough Hall, then turned back over the railway bridge into Great Haywood to the pet shop (shut) and back home.
Saw lots of boaters - Chas (Moore 2 Life), Contended Souls (Matilda Rose), Lesley from Caxton and Ann (Moore 2 Life) and some wildlife so it took a while!
