Wrenbury to Llangollen July 2014 Day 4 Afternoon.

After a nice lunch in Llangollen on Tuesday afternoon we had a stroll around the town. I heard a train pulling in at the station so popped down there for a look, the engine was just running round its train.

We took a stroll on the river, joining others with a cooling paddle in the river Dee. Quite a lot of folk about.

Off for a paddle.
The day was now very hot, so an ice cream was needed then a look around some of the shops, after the usual crafty and gift shops a few foodie goodies where bought for tea, cream cakes, Welsh cakes, and some very nice meat from the butchers.
Leaving the girls at the boat Stephen and I took a walk up to Horseshoe Falls along the feeder canal.
The water was crystal clear, with wavy weeds and plenty of fish about.
Lovely cottage next to Feeder Canal.
We called in at the Chain Bridge Hotel for a drink, the Chain Bridge has seen better days.

At Horseshoe falls the locals where having a splash about, clambering over the weir and surfing down the slippery channels.

Walking back we spotted a nice Triumph Vitesse near the motor museum, and nearer town a house on the hillside with a great veranda.

When we got back to the basin, dinner was not ready, and the 2 girls where b---y paddling in the shower to cool down their hot feet, and all they had done was walk round town before Stephen and I had walked to the falls.

After a late dinner, it was feet up time with a couple of ciders, and chatting to other neighbouring boats before turning in.
