Back On The Boat In Ellesmere

Gwenllian with her granddad Eric
After a hectic five days we're back on the boat......we thoroughly enjoyed catching up with our families and friends with various meals involved. First we had a lovely Sunday Lunch at The Three Blackbirds in Llantarnum to celebrate my dad's 86th birthday.....I recommend the carvery there.

On the Monday I had a meal with Dilys and Wendy, friends from my teaching days, at The Man of Gwent on Chepstow Road......this time a sizzling steak......very nice too. We also shared a take away from Jasmine Rice, Commercial Road in Newport with our daughters and granddaughter at Lisa's house. The food was exceptional, the best Chinese meal I've had in a long time. Wednesday night it was back to normality with bacon and egg butties at Clare's house......they went down a treat!
Today we had a journey in reverse with only an eight minute gap between the train's arrival and the bus's departure to Ellesmere. I am glad we made it as the next bus was an hour away. Back on the boat we're staying overnight in the marina mainly due to the wind sweeping across the marina which would make manoeuvring the boat to the exit past fibre glass boats a nightmare!
