We have spent a pleasant few days moored here at Ellesmere, we actually got our barbecue out for the first time this year. Today it was time to part company with Kathy, although we will, hopefully, see her in between times, we probably won't cruise with her until at least this time next year. Our plans aren't fixed yet but we think we may head for the Kennet and Avon next spring.
After a lovely farewell lunch in the sunshine we headed off down the Llangollen to Whitchurch, heading basically northwards towards the junction with the Shropshire Union at Hurleston Locks. After an uneventful journey we moored opposite the 48 hour moorings at the Whitchurch Arm. Tomorrow we will head towards Grindley Brook and beyond to meet Barry and Alex for dinner.
Today's journey 12.5 miles, 5 lift bridges and 1 tunnel.
So far this year we have travelled 217.4 miles, 133 locks, 29 lift bridges and 6 tunnels.
Since Ray retired we have travelled 955.8 miles, 778 locks, 55 swing bridges, 33 lift bridges and 31 tunnels.
