Riverside And Lakeside Walks

We've been walking once again with Ben the dog  around the lake at Colemere, it makes a lovely walk through the woods with parking nearby. We often pass by this lake when we cruise to Ellesmere. The leaves on the tree haven't changed much so we'll have to wait for the Autumn colours. 

The man from C&RT  has visited Whixall Marina checking licences on his tablet. We don't have mooring permits visible here but perhaps that will change when BWML finally sells the marina. Many times we were clocked  while we were cruising so at least they have a record of where we've been this Summer. 

One day Eric took us to Shrewsbury to the Quarry a recreational area alongside the River Severn used by people since times gone by the take the air. We thought it would be a place with paths  rather than mud to walk on after the heavy rain. We walked alongside the river watching the passenger trip boat taking people for a cruise and then come back within our two hour limit from the parking machine. We had a coffee at a little kiosk near the children's playground while Ben sampled the water in the bowl. Ben had a grumble as he jumped in the boot of the car, perhaps he was tired.

Back on the boat I made a curry using a jar of Patak's Jalfrezi and while it simmered we had a lazy afternoon with afternoon TV and my Kindle I was quite happy. It's quiet here at Whixall as the end of British Summertime approaches.
