|The last lock til next year! (New Marton Top Lock)|
On Thursday we left the Montgomery Canal via Frankton Locks, Liz and Connie came up to say hello at the bottom of the locks as they'd moved to the Weston Arm. We did a right turn at the top to return to Ellesmere to get some food shopping so we moored on the Ellesmere Arm overnight. By dusk the moorings were full but it was fairly quiet until the people who'd been to the pub came back about midnight and Ben had a bark! Before I forget 'Hello' to the lady from NB Parisienne Star who reads the blog, unsure of the spelling of your boat name.
This morning we began our journey to Llangollen, although the sun was shining it was very cold on the back of the boat. Ben and I warmed up with a brisk walk along the towpath. We worked through the last two locks of the year, New Marton Bottom and Top locks feeling quite chilled and glad to stop on the moorings above the locks to warm up with some hot soup.
