We’re still here in Ellesmere till tomorrow. First thing we’ll be off up to Frankton Junction to drop down the locks onto the Montgomery Canal.
Friday night was the coldest we’ve had so far, our little gadget recorded -3½°. The evidence was there to see in the morning…
Frozen puddles, frosty grass, smoky chimneys
I took Meg for a walk over the castle mound towards The Mere.
The Mere, just coming out of shadow
The castle mound is dotted with stone sculptures. Must mean something, but I know not what. Makes for good “arty” photos, though.
You can just see the moon through the top aperture.
The Boathouse pub and restaurant
Yesterday was a bit greyer, although still fine apart from a short. light shower later in the afternoon. I did my good deed for the day; jump-starting the engine on boat with completely flat batteries. I hope you got to Whixall OK, Meggy Ann.
Sunrise this morning, any significance in the Roman numeral 11?
Today we had visitors for the day, good friends Val and John, and dachshund Harry. I don’t know who was more pleased to see whom, Meg and Harry had a Wuthering Heights moment across Tesco’s carpark!
We had a really good day, chatting and catching up. They live not far from Wrexham, so we should be seeing a bit of them while we’re in this neck of the woods.
See you again soon. Thanks for the cake…. and the jam…. and the chutney.... and the company!
