One of the many fine scenes around here
For once the weatherman did get it right. Our decision to stay put on Monday was a good one. The wind and rain were conditions not to be out in and it gave us the impetuous to get some cleaning and maintenance done.
Today we set off heading towards Llangollen. The wind is still quite strong and you have to be careful not to slow too much when passing moored boats as there is a chance that the wind will blow you into them. However the sun is nice when the clouds part for a while.
We passed the junction with the Montgomery Canal and carried on to New Marton Locks. After going through we have now moored up for the day and will carry on over the famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct Tomorrow and travel as far as Trevor. This will be the limit of our incursion into Wales as from there the canal is too shallow for us.
