After the excitement of AmyJo's move to Fernwoods we have had our friends Derek and Vicky staying with us for a long weekend. They live just up the road from where we used to live in Essex and Derek has been very good in helping me replace the roof on my garage as the tin roof was sweating so bad everything inside was getting wet.
After the roof was completed we had a day in hand to spare before they returned to Essex and as the weather was behaving itself we decided to go to the Loggerheads country park for a walk.
After a leisurely 4 mile walk we wanted to do something else so I suggested we tried something I had wanted to do for a long time, so, as we both were getting canal withdrawal symptoms, we then went on and had a stroll along the Pontcysyllte aqueduct We passed over this in a hire boat some years ago but never had chance to walk it. Having not long celebrated it's 200 year birthday the aqueduct still does not leak a drop to this day.

Whilst in Trevor basin we met fellow bloggers Julie and her husband (sorry did not get your name) on The Cats Whiskers We had a quick chat as they winded their boat before looking for a mooring for the night.
We have not much to report on AmyJo for now but are looking forward to Crick next weekend, then we have a meeting with Fernwoods planned after that.
Hope you are all well and enjoying the warmer weather.
