We had originally planned to leave the marina at the end of the month but a nice surprise bought forward our leaving to the beginning of the month
For the last two weeks we (Chris and I) have been moored outside our local pub the "Shady Oak". The reason....it has been closed since October and our good friends Pete and Yvonne have taken on the pub as landlords.
Pete and Yvonne are boaters themselves and have run pubs in the past so the "Shady" will be in good hands.
Unfortunately the previous landlords have rather neglected the pub so we have spent the last weeks clearing up rubbish outside and decorating inside. All being well the "Shady" will re-open on the 10th April. If you are heading towards Chester please drop in for a drink and say hi.
