Foggy Maesbury Marsh

The wildlife on the 'Monty'
We woke this morning to a very foggy Maesbury Marsh but it soon cleared. Eric and I took Ben for a walk along the newly restored section. It's in water and the plants are flourishing along the banks. We continued our walk to see the section being restored by the Shropshire Union Canal Society and further down a section is also being restored by the Waterways Recovery Group. Ben managed to get a thorn in his paw but I pulled it out and he's fine.
Back on the boat it was roast lamb for three as Ben loves a bit of meat and vegetables. Rice pudding to follow and Ben even had a taste of that!

Oh lovely, lovely! What a serene picture of life abounding on the canals. We hope you are both well.

Hi Jaq & Les,

Yes we're both well. Eric is recovering from a very long walk to the nearest shop about three miles away!.....and then we had to walk back! Now have chocolate!!

I hope you had more than a composting toilet for your birthday.

Take care, Elsie & Eric
