Up the Golly

Welcome back,

Happy Valentine's Day

I don't know what it's like where you are, but we're still having amazingly lovely weather. Granted it's still cold, but the sun's shining and the skies are blue - what more could we want?

Yesterday we moored outside The Old Barbridge Inn as our friend Adele was coming for lunch. We had a really good meal and Roger said the beer was on form too.

I've been wondering where all the boats have been recently, well I can tell you that they're all on the Shroppie - or more specifically around the Barbridge Junction area. We saw LOADS of boats yesterday. Unfortunately the majority seemed to be weekend speed boats with very few slowing down past moored boats.

Today we've moved onto the Llangollen Canal and it's gone quiet again. Water levels seem very high at the moment and some of the lock by-washes have been quite fierce, although not so bad as to give me any problems steering into locks.  We've found a lovely secluded rural mooring for tonight and I'm just about to cook the Sunday roast. Life is good

See you soon
