Today Liz and I did a very long walk, it took us hours but the sun was shining so it was a brilliant day for a walk. We walked the towpath as far as the bridge before the Motor Museum and then followed the footpaths taking us past Valle Crucis Abbey. You could see the camping pods in the grounds near the old fishing pond as well as caravans galore. Walking towards Hendre past the plantation we saw new cabins and more fishing ponds we'd never noticed before.

We finally followed the track down taking us to Llantisilio and then took the road passing Llantisilio Hall and back to Llantisilio Church. From there we were on familiar territory back alongside the canal towpath. We passed some lovely canalside properties and admired the houses alongside the River Dee. The water levels are much lower now after they were a few weeks ago.
Back on the boat, boots off, fed and watered.......I think I'll read my book!
