Llangollen to the Montgomery

It was pretty quiet coming up the Llan this year i am suprised, passing Grindley brook i noticed the cooking apples are just about ready so will have a few on the way down.
We gave Ellesmere a miss this time but we will stock up on our return, we had booked Frankton a day in advance because we knew how long it took to get there after doing it last year,when we reached Frankton locks Amy was there on duty and she remembered us.

winding hole
The winding hole is the limit of navigation although you can walk down the restored bit.Amy asked if she could go up the lock with me as she had never been on a boat through a lock, of course i said yes bless.
