Australia Day On Llangollen Wharf

Moira and Mike (Tasmanians on NB Blue Toad) invited all the other boaters moored at Llangollen to a barbecue to celebrate Australia Day outside their boat.The boat and towpath were suitably adorned with flags, koalas, kangaroos, snakes and balloons. There was even a blown up kangaroo on the roof! The barbecue was lit and we enjoyed 'snaggers & onions' also known as sausages & onions in bread followed by tropical fruit kebabs. The 'Mulled Grog Pot' provided alcoholic beverages and enjoyed by all- we needed something warm to keep the cold at bay! During the afternoon a visiting basking shark (blown up variety) came floating by and paused by NB Blue Toad. The dogs wondered what it was!
