We set off early the next morning and were soon up through the two locks of the day
|Lovely sunny morning|
|The second and final lock of the day|
|Just loved this little bridge just to the left of the lock|
It was to be a day of unusual sightings, first off a huge sheep strolling along the path
|Can't really tell from this photo, but it was really wide|
Next in the grounds of the Lion Quays Hotel was this magnificent peacock
|He put on a display for us, but the background wasn't ideal|
Then we came across this gaggle of geese where these two decided to follow us for a while
|These two took a liking to us|
It was an interesting journey some of it very high up, looking over the roof tops we had a fantastic view.
|It was amazing looking over the roof tops|
Over Chirk Aqueduct and into Wales.
It was then through Chirk tunnel, again just one way traffic but this time all clear, it's a bit of a struggle through these narrow tunnels as there isn't a lot of water.
We then passed a day boat with nuns on a jolly, from a distance I thought they were real nuns (which has made James chuckle about for the rest of the day) but when they started to shoot us with water pistols it was confirmed they were hens out partying.
|Nuns having fun|
We moored up at Froncysyllte ready for an early morning crossing of the Pontcysyllte aqueduct.
|Moored up in Froncysyllte|
