August 26th 2012 The Llangollen

Today we turned onto the Llangollen canal, we joined the the two boat queue at Hurleston junction to go up the four locks at the start of the canal. The first lock is quite narrow and boaters are advised to raise there fenders. A boat coming down did get jammed with the bows up and the stern down Luckily for him Sheila who was helping lock him down spotted the danger and swiftly turned the lock, refilling it to get him afloat and the second attempt to lock him down was succesful. The rest of the day was drama free as we made our way through the locks at Swanley and Baddiley. We are moored about 1 mile outside Wrenbury where we will pick up Ben and Claire tomorrow morning.
