Back On The Llangollen Canal

We've had a long day today leaving Middlewich and going up the Hurleston flight of locks and mooring up on the Llangollen Canal.We finally managed to fill up our diesel tank with 133 litres of fuel at Venetian Hire Boats & Chandlery, under new ownership and actually pleased to see you.

A lovely day with loads of sunshine. We thought we'd visit this canal in the Summer, it looks different when the leaves are on the trees and everthing is green. Eric can't go past Hurleston Junction without going on the Llangollen.....his favourite canal.

We're going to pop into Whixall Marina to find out about a mooring, we'd like to have somewhere we can leave the boat and not have the worry about where we can stay for the winter months. It also means we'll be able to see  our girls a little more often.

Morning Elsie,

Whixall is a little off the beaten track and, when we were there a few years back, somewhat short on buses. So can be difficult for shopping.

Hi Rick,

Just to let you know we're going to get some wheels. Got a residential mooring so have somewhere to leave a car when we go out to cruise. The berth has 16 amp electric too so atleast things work.

All the best, Elsie & Eric
