At Prees Junction we resisted the urge to turn left into the arm today, perhaps on our return as we will have some time to hand.

|Much more traffic after Press, Boat after boat headed towards us.
|Andy never told me Fernwoods were diversifying.
After that the rest of the day was bliss in the warm sunshine. We passed Cole Mere and Blake Mere with more of those fantastic views that the LLangollen serves up along its path.
|Could sit there all day when I get the chance
Later we took the short walk on to the Ellesmere arm and the new Tesco for a shop. As expected late in the day, no empty moorings were available in the arm but if one can find a spot here this is a great place to stop.

Tomorrow we head on up stream now in new waters for AmyJo. Will we reach the aqueducts? Can't wait to cross the Pontcysyllte aqueduct. again.
