We had the weekend of the 7th and 8th at Frankton Junction, before heading back to Ellesmere last Wednesday.
Early morning at the junction…
It wasn’t all fine weather, we did have rain and wind but it was mainly mild, at least.
We chose a good day for the trip back though.
Down the arm for just one night for shopping, then we pulled out to top up with water and move out of town for a bit. But the wind got up and the rain started so we drifted across the junction and pulled in on the end of the moorings just outside the arm.
Cold clear nights have left ice on the water where the flow of the canal is very slow.
We were only going to stay there a night or two, but it was quieter than being on the arm and we had afternoon sunshine so we stayed put till today.
After filling the water tank we crunched through the thin ice on the arm and moored at the end near Tesco. Mags has another appointment for a blood sample tomorrow, then we’ll head off towards Trevor, probably Friday, maybe Saturday, depending on the weather.
Mags is still doing OK but the last bloods came back showing that she’s still a bit jaundiced. This sample should show if the situation is better or worse. If worse I expect that she’ll need a CT scan, but we can’t see that happening till January.
