We looked at how we might restock with food to see us over the next few days. With only a small ice-box in the top of the fridge, an no freezer, we need to shop quite regularly. We considered an on-line shop but couldn’t find anywhere with a road nearby and a mooring where we could sit and wait for a delivery.
The nearest supermarkets were Sainsburys in Lancaster or Asda and Morrisons in Morecambe. Buses from Hest Bank stop at Morrisons so that decided it.
We headed out to catch the No 755 bus at 10.28. Unfortunately this bus was running half an hour late today and so by the time we’d done our shopping we’d missed the bus back we’d rather have caught. We considered getting a taxi back, but as we had all afternoon to reach Galgate, our destination for the day, we went for a coffee before catching the 13.07 bus back to the boat.
While I put everything away Storm took down the rear canopy and made ready to leave. We pootled slowly back to Lancaster, crossing the Lune Aqueduct that we visited yesterday, before pausing briefly at the sanitary station to fill up with water and empty out our rubbish. The elson disposal was out of order but thankfully there is another at Galgate so we continued on, leaving Lancaster at 4pm.
Oleanna was moored up in Lancaster and there was no sign of anyone so we texted to let them know we’d gone on ahead.
We’d made it to Galgate by 5pm, used the services there and then moored up opposite. We’ll stay here until Oleanna joins us again.
