Tarleton

After a cold, blustery & showery cruise this morning we are now moored up on the visitor moorings in Tarleton, ready for our trip up the Ribble Link in the morning, when we arrived there were 2 other boats here but several more have arrived during the afternoon.
Before leaving Rufford this morning we called into St Mary's Marina for a top up of diesel ( 95p domestic / self declare) & a gas bottle, we also were given some useful hints & tips for the crossing tomorrow.
Once tied up we had a walk into the village to get some supplies from the Co-op & after a spot of lunch walked up to have a look at the river lock...
... onto the River Douglas

It is raining hard now with a stiff breeze, hope it improves a bit before morning...

    1. Have been following your adventure on the Thames, we went as far as Paddington last year but didn't do the 'lumpy bit' Maybe next time ;)

    2. You recently said on CWF that you bought a mini twintub from "Limestore". A search for Limestore doesnt yield anything relevant, Can you give me a link?
      Thanks

  3. Hope your crossing went well. I was thinking about you yesterday when I was stuck in a traffic jam London-bound on the M4. Want to swap places? No, thought not!

    1. You're dead right, our days of traffic jams are long gone,though there is the odd queue for locks! Got up the link eventually, took 2 goes! Just about to update the blog.
