On The Move-Llangollen To Chirk

The daffodils opposite the boat

Lots of nice new towpaths as far as Bryn Howel


I looked out of the window to see all the daffodils on the bank opposite flowering, it's moving time. We filled up with water after our last long showers, we'll have to more careful with water and have short showers to conserve water. Eric checked the oil and water while I set off to see if any boats were coming from the mooring basin as it's a narrow stretch with one way traffic. A phone call told him he could go and I walked the other narrow sections to keep him informed. The wind was gusty in places and we had a few delays due to dredging but we finally got to Anglowelsh for fuel before going over the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. Boy it was windy but we made it. A few hours later, through two tunnels and across the Chirk Aqueduct we were moored up at Poacher's Pocket and off for a drink later. Liz and Nick (NB Henry) arrived at Poacher's Pocket a couple of hours later , so we had a few drink with them.
