After taking 87 photos yesterday I managed to take precisely no photographs today. Not one. So here are three I prepared earlier, i.e. yesterday. This is where we are moored, on the towpath, the second boat from the camera. If we hadn't been able to get in there we would have had to moor in the basin - no great hardship as it backs onto fields, then the hills. The only downside is that it's quite a bit further to the town as you have to go the "wrong" way to a bridge before retracing your steps on the towpath before being able to access LLangollen itself.
We also had a look at the Chain Bridge which crosses the Dee from the Chain Bridge Hotel to Berwyn Station on the LLangollen Railway. It bounces when you walk across it; when you get to firm ground again you feel a little unstable. I like this shot of Jan on the bridge with the lines radiating out.
We'll do our LLangollen Railway trip tomorrow, before having to leave these lovely moorings.
