A Low Alcohol Pub Crawl

Looking back at Castell Dinas Bran from Sun Trevor

Yesterday Eric and I went for a four mile walk from Llangollen to Trevor Basin and the Pontsycyllte Aqueduct with Ben. It was a lovely sunny day and we stopped at conveniently placed benches to enjoy a breather on the way including those outside the Sun Trevor Inn where Eric enjoyed a half of lager,  I had a J2O and Ben had water.

Refreshed we continued our walk to Trevor Basin.In the shop we bought a Holiday Planner Map which we find useful to give an overall plan of where we are going for the seven months we are on the move. We decided to continue our pub crawl to have a drink at the Thomas Telfort in the basin. Being ardent drinkers we both had J2O's and sampled their menu with a ham salad and a cheese ploughman's......very nice too.

We had a walk on the Ponsycyllte Aqueduct before we walked up to the No 5 bus stop on the main road and had a bus ride back to Llangollen, rather than another four mile walk. In all we had a good walk- Eric's calf muscles are telling him he did too.

Today Liz and I walked the dogs along the canal towpath to Berwyn and then up the hill and across some tracks to come back down into Llangollen. We actually met traffic on the green tracks which was unusual as you don't usually see anyone other than the farmer. Two hours later we were back on the boats in time for a  much needed shower and a change of clothes as we were off out to lunch with Nick and Eric. Nick drove us all to The Brittania Inn  situated on the Horseshoe Pass for a last lunch before NB Henry and crew sail on on their 2012 adventures. Lovely food, lovely surroundings and good company......we'll miss you both!
