3rd Day of Liveaboard – Fog!

No, it’s not a dirty lens but the view from our window

Spent the morning in Market Harborough, shopping – vital supplies (gin and bottled water for my beer kit) plus food and a poker for the fire. Found that amazing butchers in the centre of the town: http://www.batesbutchersmarketharborough.co.uk/ they sell a fantastic variety of meat – we picked up some cooking chorizo and morcilla (the spanish black sausage) plus some belly of pork – so it’s a big garbanzo stew tonight. Probably going to visit the Knightley Arms in the village as it’s under new management – they’ve put their beer list on a board outside – good move – Woodforde’s Wherry will entice us in.

The place is getting better – still  a bit stuffed but we can sit down now

The USB aerial connects us to the marina’s wifi. Viv’s keeping tabs on the expenditure, as things is a bit tight. Still we have a big bowl of fruit and some very fat ducks keep walking up the pontoon …

Toby’s very happy – 3 or 4 walks a day … winter draws on . .  it’s nearly 5 and getting dark.We’re experimenting with switching off the shore power and relying on solar during the day but little hope of seeing the sun today!
