Today 14 Boaters set off for a 45 minute walk to the Chainbridge Hotel along the towpath to have lunch. This included the crew of NB Blue Diamond, NB Shush, NB Cabinessence, NB Libertybelle, NB Blue Toad, NB Henry and of course NB Bendigedig. The path was full of puddles and mud but the rain managed to stay away until we were nearly there. We sampled their £5 lunch menu including Christmas Dinner and Christmas pud for afters-not particularly big portions but you get what you pay for! (To be quite honest we were disappointed with the food!)As the meal was booked a table was laid ready for us. I should have taken the camera as it's the first time we've all got together although we have winter moored at Llangollen for the past three years. We enjoyed the chat before we had a walk back to our boats.
