It is decision time regarding what we do today. By 5.00pm we have used our permitted time here in the basin and,to be honest, the decision could well be made for us by CRT staff, who may
tell us we have to leave. Rules are rules and it is a Bank Holiday weekend, but either way we are not fussed. Our Welsh friends return from Italy today so meeting them somewhere convenient should not be a problem once they contact us. We're making best use of the electric and water supply by washing everything in sight, need it or not. Washing cannot be hung out to dry here but that we can do that back on the cut.
Our new Australian friends have already chugged off into the distance, but no doubt our canals will cross again sometime in the future. A neighbour at the basin recommended we look at a house in the town. We were going into town anyway to get a coal bucket and a newspaper, so why not? The house is called Plas Newydd and little publicised, which is a pity as it is a real treat with a colourful history
The stove kept alight all day and the boat resembled a sauna, particularly as most of our washing was finished drying in there.
Lynne suffered a stomach upset but soldiered-on regardless, bless her.
