On Wednesday we came back to our boaty home to find everything was fine. We hadn't planned to be away so long but accidents happen. The journey back was a long one but after three hours we were home. I can't say I enjoyed the drive but it was nice to be back. Clare and Ben were happy for us to stay longer but I am sure they'll enjoy a few days without us we have to come back for another appointment.
We've been dog walking and generally enjoying the peace of Whixall Marina.Last night we went to the Horse & Jockey at Northwood for a meeting with the BWML managers for berth holders from the marina, It was informal meeting with a buffet giving us a chance to meet people and ask the managers all sorts of questions. There's quite a few empty berths here and they're obviously trying to fill them, so if you want a residential mooring on the Llangollen Canal,it's a nice quiet place but you definitely need a car as the nearest shop is miles away in Wem.
Today we walked the dog around Colemere, one of the many meres or lakes around Ellesmere.It was a lovely walk as we totally missed the heavy rain which arrived much later. We then drove a little further to get some food shopping in Ellesmere. This evening we lit the fire for the first time since the Summer.
On Monday we're going back to Newport as Eric's got an appointment with an elbow specialist. He needs a scan as there's a piece of bone that's not where it should be. Don't know what they are going to do about it, but we'll find out soon. He's actually got a removable plaster so showering is easier as he doesn't have to worry about getting a wet cast.
Have a nice weekend....let's hope the weather forecaster's have got it wrong!,
