Moored At Llangollen

NB Bendigedig in Llangollen Basin
Today we did the final stretch into Llangollen through the narrows. I walked on with Ben the dog and phoned Eric to tell him it was ok to come through.Then we stopped at the facilities to empty some cassettes. Bernie and Maggie came out to welcome us and have a catch up chat. No room online so we went up to the mooring basin which is home for four boats including us.

I made a shepherd's pie for lunch and then Eric found the tv signal to watch the Grand Prix while I popped into town to get a paper. Llangollen is very busy today with lots of visitors. There's a steam festival here this weekend too..

Eric's just cleaned the chimney  so I can light the fire. It went out last night so it was a good chance to sweep the chimney. We used the central heating to keep the boat warm until we could relight the fire. It actually obliged by coming on at the first attempt, it's rather temperamental  depending on how well charged the batteries are.

We need to top of the water tank and then we can be thorough lazy for the rest of Mother's Day. Our three daughters remembered too!
