Today our youngest daughter celebrates her 26th birthday. Although we are miles away in Llangollen we will be thinking of her and hope she has a great birthday. We spoke to her this morning and she'd had lots of presents and sounded really happy with a nice day planned.
Since I last wrote my blog Eric has returned from Newport and I don't have to talk to myself. He's just waiting for a phone call telling us when his hernia operation is. It's just as well we are moored here as he'll need time to recuperate before we set off on our travels again.
The River Dee At Llangollen
The weather here continues to be rainy and extremely windy-the satellite dish blew over in the gusts of wind and the canal has waves. Yesterday we went for a walk near the River Dee and it was certainly fierce with white water crashing. We donned our waterproofs and went down into Llangollen to do a bit of shopping. We sampled the cakes at the deli - very nice too. Ben had to make do with a rubdown with a towel to dry him off when we came back. He is never bothered about getting wet, he takes great delight in going in any shallow water he can find! After all he still enjoys his walks even when the weather is dreadful.
