Ellesmere To Blake Mere And Back. 1 Tunnel.
We were walking though.
There seem to be a few cracks appearing, in the ice as well as some boaters.
Firstly, the ice decided to crack with an almighty bang the other morning.
We were shaken and everything aboard rattled briefly, this - as we were just waking up -
found us running around like headless chickens for a while checking tanks and pipes for a monumental burst.
With the benefit of hindsight, staying in bed and calmly saying "That was just the ice moving darling" might have been a bit more macho.
Secondly, there are a few other boaters who are getting fed up with being trapped and have been moaning at the staff in the BW yard.
Quite what they think BW can do about it is beyond me.
Walking out to Blake Mere,
we had to pass through
Ellesmere tunnel, there was actually free running water here and it was so clear the rubble was visible on the bottom.
Hot Toddies on the bench in the sunshine again on our return, this could become a habit.
Until next time.....................
Chris and Debbie,
