We woke this morning to a lovely sunny day with no wind so today became the day we go cruising. Of course the camera battery was dead it's a phone photo. We topped up the water and headed over to fill up with diesel. It took 100 litres at 94p a litre. We managed to get a bit of carpet round the prop so the first trip down the weed hatch was today too.
It took three hours by boat to get to Ellesmere, it seemed so slow after our 30 minute car journeys but it was so much nicer. Those two lift bridges on the Prees Arm exercised the arm muscles which certainly need to get back into shape. Ben and I walked alongside the boat for a while. He was a bit confused at which side of the boat was land after all these months in the marina.
So we're moored up on the Elllesmere Arm enjoying a change of scenery, whether we move tomorrow depends on the weather......boating in the rain is not fun.
