Last night we decided to leave Ellesmere behind and make out way back to Llangollen. Although it's wet today we were soon up and on our way to wind at the junction with the Ellesmere Arm. Eric stopped at the waterpoint to top up after doing some washing and I walked into town to post some birthday cards with Ben the dog. Back on the boat we were soon ready to go although we didn't go far as we moored just past Frankton Junction. Ben and I walked alongside the boat on a very muddy towpath but Ben was none too happy with the gun noises, so he hopped back on the boat at the next bridge hole leaving me to follow him aboard. Very quiet at Frankton Junction today and it's stopped raining.
