After leaving Braunston we picked up a mooring at Fox’s Gate. The first job after mooring was to clean up the ash pile that someone had left in the middle of the towpath. We have an ash tin that we put the hot ashes in . Once they have cooled down they can then be bagged up and disposed of at a refuse point. But it seems that some boaters are just bone idle lazy gits.
We are now entering Wigrams marina where Inca will stay for the next week or so .We have a hire car booked and are going back down to Devon for our annual medical check ups and to catch up with family and friends.
All settled and docked on our berth. We are now on mains electric and it comes free with the mooring fee of £10 a night. So needless to say we are giving it a bit of a hammering before we leave, with the washing machine and tumble dryer running flat out. We also have a couple of electric heaters ,so we have let the solid fuel stove go out. Hopefully we it shouldn't be lit again this year. I have made a bit of a cock up and still have 6 bags of coal on the roof which will have to stay there all summer.
We are now spending our last night on-board Inca in Wigrams marina and have an early start in the morning for our annual trip back down to Devon.
