  1. Hi Cathy and Doug,
    What a fantastic adventure even if a bit scary for you Cathy! You have certainly whet my appetite for doing a canal trip. In 1987 I was lucky enough to be in the Vancouver Bach Choir and as part of a tour of the UK and Wales we were guest choir at the International Eisteddfod that takes place annually in llangollen. We sang the Mozart Requiem. I shall put on my bucket list the idea of combining the Eisteddford with a canal trip!
    Thanks for the most enjoyable accounts of your adventures.


    • We saw the Festival pavilion while walking up to Horseshoe Falls. Llangollen is very proud of their venue and we could see why. Hope you can make it there again soon.


  2. Of all the entries I’ve read of yours, this leg is the one of which I am the most envious and admiring. I also enjoyed being reminded of the words to “The Owl and the Pussycat” and about runcible spoons. Had to look that up, and I was pleased to see the “spork” meaning, appropriate for campers and travellers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Runcible. And it’s good to know what “gongoozler” is!
    I was in Llangollen in 1973 and have had the International Eisteddfod on my want-to-do list for years. Thanks for the suggestions of other activities while staying there.
    Glad you’re home safe and sound, after such a wonderful trip. Thanks again for sharing.


  3. What an adventure! And the photos are fabulous. Our canal boating experience years ago seems tame by comparison. We had much more than mere inches on either side of the boat and we certainly did not attain such heights. Thanks for sharing and welcome home. David
