Cruising Update

We are currently retracing our steps on the Trent and Mersey Canal.

We are currently moored at Middlewitch where we did some more grocery shopping, including restocking some shelf stable meats.

Today we will head for the Middlewitch Branch of the Shropshire Union Canal.

  It means five locks to negotiate so pray the rain holds off because I become cranky when soaked to the skin.

Our goal is to end up at the Llangollen Canal where we have a couple of weeks of peaceful and scenic cruising planned.

Yesterday, besides shopping, I made another loaf of bread and some Scottish shortbread, did some laundry which I had to hang inside due to rain and hail, worked a lock, crocheted, and made spaghetti for dinner. It was a productive day.

I must admit, however, that I am more than ready for warmer and sunnier weather.

It is May after all. It seems strange to still be building fires in the stove because you can see your breath inside the boat if you don't.
