Eric's Back On Narrowboat Bendigedig

I have had a very quiet few days without my other half. Yesterday NB Ami Bovard (am I bothered!) moored next to us and we did have a lovely chat. They tapped on the window to apologise for having to run their engine, but inside the boat you couldn't hear it. As they are continuous cruisers we had plenty to talk about as the dogs sniffed each other. We continued our chat as the dogs watered the hedges when I let Ben out first thing in the morning.

Paul of Waterways Routes stopped to chat as he spotted NB Bendigedig. He was cycling from Ellesmere to Chirk researching the route for his new maps of the Llangollen Canal. Apparently you can download the Droitwich ones for free to try them out.

Eric arrived back on the bus from Shrewsbury and I met him outside Tesco as I had some shopping today before our trip to Whixall to get some fuel. The price of fuel at Blackwater Meadow Marina  is steep and we fancy a cruise anyway. So tomorrow we'll do the water, cassettes and get rid of the rubbish and we'll be on our way. I'm sure Ben will enjoy a different walk as we walk with the boat.

Eric's had his stitches out and the good news is the lump was benign.

Hi Eric, Elsie and Ben, We passed you a few days back but saw nobody about. We were heading back from Llangollen and have called in at Ellesmere.
Heading down to Nantwich in the next few days.

Glad all went well for Eric. Glen has to have her appendix removed in the coming weeks. Never mind, summer is on it's way.

Take care, happy cruising, Glen, Nigel, Piper and Star
