Day 1 :The Journey & Chirk Castle    (Tuesday 4th August 2015 )
Day 2 :West to Llangollen    (Wednesday 5th August 2015 )
Day 3 : Our first lock!

Thursday 6th August 2015

We left Llangollen at a leasurely pace & enjoyed a ships breakfast.

Marmite had a nice walk & a nice lady to transport him safely to the boat.

We travelled back accross the aquaduct, helped by a couple with a friend with a walkie talkie who was the othere side of the bridge . The bridge is strictly one boat wide.

From the top we could see another structure we took to be a viaduct,

We later found it to be another aquaduct.

We stopped for lunch & a look around the bustling local shopping mall.

We passed Chirk Marina , waving to our pal Andy who was so busy he had time to strim his weeds !

A few miles on we encountered our first lock, a nearby cottage resident called Paul , came out, to help the bunch of rank amateurs assembled to accurately operate the lock without breaking it!

I wonder how many times a day he rushes out to instruct novice boaters??

We found our final stop for the evening at the "Narrow Boat Inn" , the usual number of evening diners  has swelled to a point where long delays are expected.

Well another relaxing day , Steak & Ale pie for tea ..Hoping for a sunny day tomorrow, Goodnight dear reader xxx
