We decided to take the boat out for the first time this "Summer" on Tuesday. An open ended cruise lay in front of us, and we decided to "bite the bullet" and take her down the Llangollen in high season. We left our departure until after lunch yesterday, and spent the evening in Wrenbury with a few "essentials" bought in the Cotton Arms After a walk in the sunshine again today to buy a morning paper, we set off again at around 10.30am, having met Ali and John from nb Triskaideka yesterday afternoon while we were sat on the bench at Wrenbury Mill eating ice cream! Today, Wednesday, we moored for an excellent lunch and a pint at Willey Moor Lock Inn, before we hit the usual bedlam at Grindley Brook Locks, which took us 3 hours to get through, the lock keeper letting 6 at a time each way. We eventually moored up on the 48 hour moorings above the top lock at around 5.30p.m, but who cares about time, Margaret enjoys the social life at the locks. We are now moored next boat but one to Triskaidaka, and at some stage tomorrow, will head towards Ellesmere, and the Montgomery Canal.
