Llangollen Update And A Surprise Visitor

We're having a taste of civilization in Llangollen, which is quieter after a busy weekend.  Since we arrived we've shopped for food and done the washing. ....not at all exciting. Liz, Nick and Connie are here on NB Henry for the winter so Ben the dog has his pal again. Getting him walking is usually hard going but he quite happily walked to Horseshoe Falls and back following Connie. It gave Liz and I chance to put the world to right and have a good catch up. A resurfaced footpath to Llantysilio Church made walking there mud free and there's a circular route back across the field to a picnic area and car park. Too late to see the carpet of snowdrops in the church yard but a pleasant flat walk any way.

We met up for a meal at Fouzis' with Nick and Liz which was great with lovely food and good company. We resisted desserts and had  coffees instead. Ben the dog wasn't happy to be left and had a good bark which hopefully soon stopped. He was fine when we got back, he'd eaten his treats  so he must have settled down. We leave the radio on to keep him company.

This morning I was still in my pyamas and dressing gown, waiting for the water to heat up for a shower when Connie and Nick came by the boat. Ben was pleased to see her. A little later I had another visitor Lauren from Austin, Texas who had come by boat with her husband Jim and son Ty  on a boating holiday. The surprise was she'd been reading my blog,  fancied a boating holiday and hired a narrowboat from Canaltime at Whixall Marina. She came on board and told us about some of the places they'd visited on their big trip. Lovely to meet someone who reads my blog from so far away.
