We were getting a bit stir crazy in the marina so decided we would venture out. Didn’t expect the torrential rain first thing though. We were giving our old fridge away as we had bought another with a bigger freezer. When the rain subsided (after lunch), we set off to obtain our new fridge/freezer from Midland chandlers as we could moor outside. We then ventured out turning right towards Burton. We know this section really well now as done it a few times. Weather won’t be great but we need to sample this sort of thing if we are to survive continually cruising. We have moored up for the night just outside of Willington. Clouds looking a bit ominous.
