It was an easy journey today, no locks, but several lift bridges. Our 13 mile journey took us about 6 hours. Arriving at Ellsmere we decided to take a look up the town arm just in case there was a space for us. As we motored down the long line of moored boats we thought, oh well turn around at the end and find somewhere along towpath, but just as we reached the end of the arm there was a there was space, so in we nipped.
We'll stay here tomorrow, and if the weatherman is to be believed we may end up staying Monday as well. They are promising very strong winds but we all know how reliable their pine cone and seaweed are!
