Randy Amphibian


IMG_4346Still moored at Whitchurch and we are having some great free entertainment from all the hire boats. All he had to do was pull in to the bank so his other half could open the lift bridge.

IMG_4359Going the other way and this hire boat got well and truly stuck.

IMG_4369What another great boat name….

IMG_4383 Yet another good boat name and I thought they meant it was Randy Amphibian, but it seems there is such a thing as A Horny Toad. Mind you he may well be a randy old Toad..

IMG_4388After some time at Whitchurch we pulled pins at 09.10 and came across this very unhappy boater just past Lyneal Wharf. It seems that the hire boat in the right of the picture had forced the guy into the bank where he was well and truly stuck.

IMG_4391So being the kind hearted boaters we are we did our good deed for the day and pulled him off. To say he wasn't a great fan of hire boaters would be an under statement.

IMG_4395Finally arriving at Ellesmere and after winding we picked up this mooring opposite the services. If we can we like to have our side hatch on the canal side especially when there is a lot of foot traffic on the towpath as there is here. We now will have a day or two here, chill out and watch the world go by…
