With all the Christmas shopping finished, we cruised back to Tatenhall today. We're moored outside the marina on the 48hr moorings but will move onto the visitor moorings in the marina tomorrow for a week. This is so that we can safely leave the boat while we go off visiting family and friends again. Also we'll plug into the electric so I can leave the TV recorder box on while we're away.
While we were in Chester we met the skipper of the restaurant boat "L' Eau -T Cuisine" who boaters may know as Bargee Bill, the inventer of Bargee Bill's Prop Cleaner. He's a real character and invited us to join him and his wife at the Mill Hotel last night for a bite to eat and for the Jazz Night. The bar (which has a good selection of real ales and excellent bar food) was packed and the group who play there every Monday were very good. I think we'll have to go back in the new year for another visit.
