Cruising Back To Whixall

Early this morning it was misty above the locks at Grindley Brook. The sun rose through the mist and soon it was gone leaving a sunny day. Leaving the moorings we knew we had just six lift bridges to get through before we were back in Whixall once again. It wasn't particularly warm but it was pleasant enough for the last cruise of the year. Ben the dog and I had a lovely walk too. At least it wasn't windy which makes getting into our berth easier.

Not very many boats on the move but we did see one familiar boat on the way back NB Barney with Mac and Sue. Nice to have a chat with you....we'll see you in Llangollen. 

Back in the marina there's quite a few spaces filled while we've been away, so some new faces.  Soon we were back on shoreline and Eric had set up the satellite TV.   I took a big bag of washing over to the laundry which was soon washed and dried using laundry tokens included in our residential mooring.

Anyway time to chill and enjoy the peace and quiet of Whixall Marina.  I've lit the fire and we'll be keeping it alight overnight as it was cold last night.
