I had a last minute knitting frenzy to make some bunting to decorate the boat and had 8 triangles at each end as well as fairy lights. Sadly we didn't get around to taking many photos at 'The Port'.
The Shropshire Union Canal between Chester and Ellesmere Port is incredibly dirty, literally thousands of plastic bottles, cans and rubbish. We think it's the dirtiest bit of canal we've ever seen.

The canal was so still in Chester which meant John could get some lovelyreflection photos. We had a lovely long visit to 'Abakhan' haberdashery shop right near where we were moored. I got some yarn to make John a jumper.
We're now moored next to the 'Shady Oak' pub and very near Beeston Castle this evening.
As I was getting the dinner there was a knocking sound and there were two swans looking in thehatch. They enjoyed nibbling my fingers and some lettuce.
