It's Saturday and we're spending another night on the Ellesmere Arm before setting off on our travels tomorrow. Although we're moored at the end nearest town it was quiet here last night. During the day loads of people walk by looking at the boats and walking their dogs as well as boaters going past with their shopping- mostly Tesco bags. I expect the Co-op and Spar shops have noticed the difference in trade since Tesco arrived.
Today (Saturday) Eric watched the F A Cup Final and tomorrow it's the Grand Prix so he'll be quite happy. I can still remembered going to see 'Grand Prix' a film in the cinema when I about 17- Eric's idea of a great date- I was bored to death! After the Grand Prix we'll be filling up with water at the services before leaving Ellesmere for a while- we need to get some fuel at Whixall Marina.
