The Return Journey- Llangollen To Chirk

Our exit from Llangollen was much quicker than the journey in as we were travelling with the flow of water. I walked the narrows with Ben after saying our goodbyes to friends on the winter moorings. No boats coming through so Eric didn't have to wait  for any to come through. In fact we didn't see any moving narrowboats until just before Trevor Basin, the only moving boats were canoes near Bryn Howell.

We took the sharp right turn into Trevor Basin and were somewhat surprised that we could go straight across the Pontysycyllte Aqueduct without waiting, lovely in the sunshine with no wind.  We've been across it on windy days and in snow on other occasions. We didn't meet another moving boat until we got to the Fron lift bridge which Eric opened and shut for me  and I steered the boat through.

We went through Whitehouse Tunnel and then moored up just past Chirk Marina on the new visitor  moorings. A few boats have passed here since we moored up but it's very quiet today.
