To Chirk

checked the insect vial this morning and was nothing in there, shame as i wanted to see what they were trying to catch, Another early start this morning (8.30am) after a sleepless night moored between two fields of sheep that were bleating most of the night, so onwards and upwards the day started off really well untill the hire boaters woke up and got on the water, every bridge or blind bend there were at least 6 boats in convoy such fun to watch them across the canal or grounded because they panic, you can't buy entertainment like this so after doing the Chirk Aqueduct and 2 tunnels we arrived at alan's mooring where we had arranged to meet him to give him his new ash pole that we picked up for him earlier in the month, it was nice to see him again.
