Back Up The Frankton Locks, Back To Ellesmere

We spent last night moored on the Weston Arm. Eric reversed in which was good as when we got up the wind was really bad and it was difficult to get across to the waterpoint. I pulled her across with the help of another boater and Eric filled up before heading up to the bottom of the locks. We booked our passage for Monday so up the locks we came at midday, battling against the wind. The lock keeper crossed us off his list!

We decided to take a right turn back to Ellesmere to stop on the Arm so I could get some bread, milk, and fruit. Lots of boats about battling with the wind too as it's half term. We moored at the end of the Ellesmere Arm and I went to get the shopping  in Tesco so  now we're  ready to go to Llangollen, it just depends on the weather whether we move tomorrow.

NB Henry with Liz, Nick and Connie is moored at the Junction on their way to Llangollen too. They came onboard for a cuppa and a chat. Ben was a pain as he didn't want to share his boat with another dog......even if it was Connie!
