The Magnificent Montgomery

 We arrived at Ellsmere on Thursday afternoon when I rang CaRT to book passage through Frankton Locks today. After a leisurely cruise this morning, we arrived in time for me to do a little painting before the lock keeper arrived at 12pm. Passage onto the Monty is between 12pm and 2pm daily, and must be booked before 10am for a same day passage. The 7 mile journey to the end of navigation showed us some amazing scenery and is well worth doing, so quiet and peaceful compared to the Llangollen. We had evening dinner at the Navigation Inn at Maesbury Marsh. This is canal side, with a dining room located within a restored 18th. Century canal warehouse. The atmosphere was stunning, and the food, available from several menu options was excellent. We are moored directly opposite, perhaps as well after 2 pints of their Bumble Bee guest beer! All is well in our world tonight.

Apologies about the image quality, they were done on my phone and the light was failing. For a better look at what we experienced here this evening take a look at The Navigation Inn. We are now back at the boat after a short walk over the bridge on to the tow path, and we are now watching the Olympic opening ceremony, good TV signal, good 3 mobile internet signal, but if this post appears twice, it is because the email version I sent from my mobile phone appeared to get lost in cyber space!
