Trip to Ellesmere Port

On Sunday we decided to make the journey to Ellesmere Port. You can join the Manchester Ship Canal here and do a loop back to the River Weaver and then the T&M. But we aren’t really experienced enough for that just yet, so turned at the end before the locks, moored up, and visited the Waterways museum whilst we were there.

We then carried on our journey back from whence we came and stopped at the bridge we needed for Chester zoo. We had a lovely day at the zoo yesterday. Took a picnic and wandered around all day in glorious sunshine.

Chester zoo. Well worth a visit.

Today we have arrived back at Waverton and we are having lunch out tomorrow with our old neighbour again. We are having to return to Cornwall at the end of the week to do some house selling business, and sort out the last of our things that now has to be decided whether to keep, or get rid! We are going into Tattenhall Marina, as that is the nearest to here, and we can get a car from Chester.
