That out of the way back to the blog in hand
Today was time to say farewell to Llangollen and start our trip back. It felt a little cooler today but still a nice day none the less. We pulled out at about 9:30am and found that a large number of boats were towards us.

|Our fleet make their way down from Llangollen one by one.|
Its going to be busy in the basin tonight as boat, after boat, after boat was passed going upstream. Chris went ahead as lookout per usual and reached the Trevor basin to see the trip boat just leaving to cross the aqueduct.
Being only a short way back from the junction I made the turn and followed the trip boat onto the aqueduct.

Next was Graham
and finally Marie. It should be ladies first but Marie prefers to follow.
We crossed Chirk Aqueduct and Tunnel without hitch and with only two boats waiting to come through.

After a brief pause at Chirk Bank for lunch we continued our way and eventually moored at the Poacher's Pocket for the night
