Coming into port

Leaving Cat weasel corner after a lovely peaceful night.

First adventure , a return journey across the aquaduct..With our figurehead at the front.

The second aquaduct , marginally less terrifying , with a handrail to prevent disaster !

Ian enjoying the morning sunshine.

The local air fresheners" were out in force ..Moooooooo

Marmite does a great job of keeping the boat in sight , & not losing his gossiping dog walkers.

Mum & Joshuas first lock..

All hands on deck! everyone gets a job , even if it is photographer & doggy guardian.

It all seemed to work perfectly , Ian didn't get our massive boat stuck on a sill. Hats off to the deck hands too.

First mate Mum has a go at steering , No we didn't run aground...But she prefered the Port & Lemon to the Port & Starboard.

Lynford Christie passed us on his training..

Min has had a narrow boat named after her !

A lovely New Zealand couple took our picture in Ellesmere Port, we moored near the town & took a leasurely stroll in.

Our final destination , The Red Lion came highly recommended , Ians dubious directions round the back of peoples house turned out to be ok.

A nice picture of Min & Joshuarse.

Cheers everyone, Our meal was ENORMOUS & the beer was great...
Back to our barge for another night on the water .

Goodnight dear reader ( anybody out there ??? )
