About to leave Llangollen

We have had a lovely 48 hours in the basin here at Llangollen. There were still plenty of empty moorings in the basin even though the town is busy with the eisteddfod this week.

Vicki and Tom left us at lunch time yesterday, to go to Norwich to stay with friends for the night before collecting Ernie in the morning.

In the afternoon our friend Victoria arrived for the afternoon, we had lunch in the town followed by a walk to Horse Shoe falls.  It sounds very dramatic but, as you can see it’s not one of the wonders of the world.  This is where the water for the Llangollen canal is taken and eventually ends up as Chester’s drinking water.



Oscar thoroughly enjoyed the dip in the falls to cool him down.  He did very well to make the two mile walk each way even if it was at a snails’ pace!

In the evening we went into the town again and saw the enactment of Brief Encounter at the station.  We were too late to get onto the station platform to see it so we watched it from the road bridge.


After lunch today we will head back to Trevor for the evening, as you can only spend up to 48 hours on the moorings here.
