Our car has been repaired at Roden's garage just round the corner from Dobson's Bridge, a short walk from Whixall Marina, so now we have wheels again. We didn't really miss it over the last few days as we had plenty of food onboard and didn't have any drives planned other than visiting Newport at the weekend.
Today we decided to go to Prees Heath Common Reserve where dogs are allowed but have to on the lead in certain areas where nesting birds could be disturbed. Running down the middle of the site is an old airfield. Heathland and grassland vegetation is being restored across the site and at the right time of year there'll be butterflies as it's a butterfly conservation area. Google it for more information and directions of how to get there.
Ben had a good run and is now fast asleep.
