A bit of a lie-in today after yesterday’s early start. We got away at about 10:30, and joined a bit of a queue to go through the 2 New Marton locks. Still, we were clear by 11:30.
Had an easy run past Frankton Junction and the entrance to the Montgomery Canal. We’ll come back to the Llangollen when it’s quieter, and “do” the Montgomery then.
Heading towards Frankton Junction
Another 2½ miles saw us mooring up just this side of Ellesmere, on a 48 hour mooring near the unfortunately named Stanks Bridge. Just in front of us is NB WILVIR, first met on the Ashby in the winter, and last seen briefly near Fradley earlier in the year. Their dog, Gunner, and Meg spent a ½ hour playing, while we caught up with the news. Bill and Virginia are heading for the Montgomery on Friday.
