Frankton Junction to Ellesmere

Only a short cruise today, beacause we had to hang around until 12.00 for the lock keeper. We moored at Ellesmere so we could do a Tesco shop. We also called in at Blackwater Meadow Marina at Ellesmere, as the boat had to be treated to a new battery for the bow thruster,  as it was sounding quite sick and wasn’t holding charge.
