Ein hail ddiwrnod yn Llangollen

Yes, it’s our second and final day here in Llangollen. Sunshine and showers. Viv goes off on a wander to look in the shops – Steve cleans & tidies boat. Later we all walk to the Horseshoe Falls.

Beyond the basin, the canal continues to its source at the Horseshoe Falls
Motorised boats not allowed and anyway, there’s nowhere to turn around
This delightful chap & his boat can go – they simply swap the rudder & tiller to the other end and the horse pulls em back
Some awfully nice houses along the way – this one is for sale (£650,000)
It turned out nice
The Horseshoe falls – just a very small bit is drawn off to feed the canal, the majority flows on down the river Dee
Viv at the Falls
And Toby In the Falls!
Quite a serene spot but the clouds were gathering . . rain was coming
So, 12 million gallons a day eh? No wonder it was tough going against the flow.
We took refuge in the Chainbridge hotel
And then the sun came out again – lots of canoeists about
