We have moored on the Ellesmere arm for 72hrs so we could have a look around. Ellesmere is an 18th century market town with narrow winding streets, tall red brick houses, and terraces of old cottages. It takes it’s name from the large mere beside it. We had a good look around the town and also the small market that was going on. Tesco has a store at the end of the arm, so very convenient for supplies (a bit too convenient as tempted to visit too often!)
Today saw the arrival of the fuel boat NBMountbatten onto the arm. We decided to fill up with them as they were cheaper than the boatyards; we also needed engine oil as used the last we had changing the gearbox oil.,and Charlie doesn’t like to be without spares.
Today was a day of cleaning (always cleaning!!). Charlie polished one side of Breakaway whilst I did the inside. Just need to turn round now and do the other side! It is now 16.30 and we have finished for the day. Only someone is still working………
We will be on the move again tomorrow, but not sure yet where we will be stopping
