Opposite where we moored is a caravan and camping club site, strangely deserted. Ahead is the short Ellesmere tunnel and Ellesmere itself, complete with shops and even a supermarket. Supplies are low so it will be a welcome sight.
My first visit to Tesco by boat and thus we hope to survive for a few more days. No pay and display here and no trolley's in the canal.
Ellesmere looks a nice place and I recommend Vermeulen's delicatessen, selling warm pork pies, bread and delicious cold cream cakes. Avoid if you have an expanding,or non-shrinking, waistline.
We finally moored between bridge numbers 1W and 2W ,the first and second bridges in Wales on this canal, so we've arrived. Yippee.
