Ellesmere, Llangollen Canal
I made the postie wait at this bridge and he was not a happy bunnie. Must have been late for his cup of tea at the next remote farm.
A beautiful day, we saw a kingfisher (our third since we started out) and lots of squirrels on the towpath foraging for acorn.
We stopped at Ellesmere (first set of moorings after the junction so David could back out tomorrow morning and not have to wind in the tiny winding hole at the top.
A quick trip into town to get some shopping and then into Tesco for the rest of it. It is so handy for us boaters. David asked the butcher if have it in town had made any difference to their trade, and they said that, actually, it was better now and probably the big store has brought more visitors to the town. So that's good.
I like these easy to make sympathy cards. White card blank, white panel which has been embossed matted onto black card, some black and white spotty ribbon, a computer generated sentiment and 4 punched out butterflies which have been folded in half and one side stuck onto the card front.
