Eric's Visiting In Newport, I'm In Ellesmere

Eric's in Newport visiting while I'm here in Ellesmere with Ben the dog. He's been lucky this visit as he's met up with our three daughters  Sally, Clare and Lisa and grandaughter Gwenllian. Today he's catching up with his sister Paula whose been feeling rather poorly lately, but he says she's looking a bit better today!

Ben and I have been busy exploring Ellesmere, we've walked lots of walks we've done many times before. Today we did a circular walk including a walk through the Woodland Trail by The Mere, of course Ben loved it but after two hours walking I was tired. We were lucky it didn't rain while we were out but it's extremely windy at the moment.

Ellesmere is getting ready for the Ellesmere Festival at the weekend and signs have gone with reserved mooring for boats who have paid handsomely (£50 so I'm told) for the privilege to moor for the weekend. There's going to be lots going on but we've decided not to stay as there's a fireworks display and  Ben gets so frightened it's not fair to put him through it.

So Eric will be back tomorrow and we'll empty and fill as required and be on our way. We're heading for the River Weaver via our first experience of the Anderton Boat Lift...........it should be fun.
