We did make it to Wrenbury last night, but only just, before the heavens opened again.

We had a very nice meal in the Cotton Arms, before returning, once again in the rain.

Today we walked into Wrenbury first thing this morning, which is a very picturesque village.

On returning to the boat Pete did his engine checks, before we set off.

 We did 7 miles and 4 locks today in glorious sunshine.

We are now at Grindley Brook.

The Llangollen canal is hire-boat heaven. Although it is the private boaters who show no respect for other boaters. We did however help a hirer today who had become wedged on exiting a lock. Now as every boater knows, if you get stuck, revving the hell out of it will not help. They thanked us for our help and continued slowly.

Tomorrow we have 3 very close locks followed by the Grindley 3 Rise locks, which, weather permitting should set us on our way to very easy cruising to Ellesmere.
