The day I paddled across the sky

On 18 July I was able to do a trip I have wanted to do for years.

We started at the end of the Llangollen canal at Chain Bridge just west of LLangollen (parking and loos available) and paddled past LLangollen and Trevor.

Then came the scary bit - Pontcyslte Aqueduct (like a viaduct, but wet!). This was particularly scary for Rob soloing his open boat, as there was quite a strong gusting wind up there.

Soon after that we went through Whitehouse Tunnel (191 yards) and then Chirk Tunnel (459 yards) both with towpaths in them. To do these all you need is a whistle and a light each (headtorch is best).

We finished at Glendrid bridge between Chrk and Rhosweil where ther just happens to be a pub.
