Holiday booked


Elianne and Mia on the fore deck of Shadowfax

Well boat is now booked for this years holiday. Shadowfax from Chas Hardern Boats on the Shropshire Union canal at Beeston. We are going to do the 4 counties ring again this year posibly anticlockwise (not decided yet) and include the Llangolen canal as I want to go over the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. We went to see the boat at the yard last night, almost the same layout as Beeston Castle from last year but this boat feels much less cramped, little things like the galley has shallower worktops and cupboards making the walkway just a few inches wider. The bog also looks to be in a better position but will have to report back on that after use 😛 . Most importantly this boat is a semi-trad so I will have somewhere to put my tea^wbeer.


I posted this from the iPhone app originally as I will probably have better coverage on the phone than on wifi. Only issues with the app were not being able to adjust the position of the pictures and no way to add the links. Still its better than no connectivity and pictures taken with the phone will have GPS location on them to help with iPhoto places.

    Just stumbled across your blog! My Dad lived in Trefor during WWII – his Dad was the station master at Llangollen at the time. My Dad tells me thst he could jump across the canal at the point just before it goes across Pontcysyllte Aqueduct!! I’ve seen it – not sure I could do it! 🙂
