Wednesday, Thursday and Friday

On Wednesday we had a lunch date with Nick and Liz (NB Henry) currently moored at Llangollen. They'd chosen 'Sun Trevor' as they offer a free main meal within a few days of your birthday with a form printed off from the internet, so we had two free main meals. Eric had  beef and ale pie which looked delicious and I had a surf and turf....very nice too. Of course we had to sample the dessert menu....delicious lemon meringue pie and icecream. We left the pub rather full after a very nice afternoon,

On Thursday Ben and I had a walk on the Mosses which surprisingly wasn't too wet along the trails. Ben loves being off his lead but from March 1st it's not allowed.  I'd left Eric having a birthday lie-in. By the time we got back he was up and the boat had been vacuumed which was good as it saved me a job. We had a birthday cake of course and some cards in the post as well as phone calls from family.

Today we've been to Market Drayton for a change of scenery and we sampled the excellent fish and chips in Morrisson's Cafe. Before we went I got jumped on by Ben the dog for a cwtch (welsh for cuddle) who realised he was going to be left as we  were going out. He'd had a walk so I knew he'd be fine, and hoped he wouldn't bark. As we left we couldn't hear him!

When we got back Ben and I had a little walk then he had an afternoon nap!  I expect Eric will have one too.

Hi Sue and Vic

Following your travels although we are currently moored at Whixall Marina. We plan to cruise in April......we're fair weather boaters. Take care, Elsie and Eric
