Saturday snapshot – On the Llangollen Canal

Today I have more pictures from our vacation in Wales and England.

We rented a 68 feet long narrowboat called Tanglewood for two weeks. We picked it up in Trevor, close to Llangollen, and set out for Chester.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Okay…I think my comment disappeared. I’ll try again, but if the first one also shows up…well.

    Anyway, love the photos. The canal is gorgeous!

    Here’s MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT

  3. I’ve always wondered what that kind of trip would be like. Did you enjoy it?

  4. Looks like a beautiful adventure! The greens are so fresh and alive.
    🙂

  5. Beautiful pictures – I love that third one especially!

  6. I love these – looks like such a terrific thing to experience.

  7. Those are lovely pictures! The canals in Amsterdam are great, but they’ve gotten very dirty. Not nearly as nice to look at.

    My Snapshot is here.

  8. What a fantastic vacation! All my relatives live in the UK so the photos are very familiar and inviting to me

  9. We loved our vacation, and we’re planning to go again another year 🙂

  10. That is so picturesque. I’ve never seen a boat that narrow. I need to get out more.

  11. What a neat boat! I’d love to vacation like that!
    Here’s My Photo

  12. How does anyone know how to operate one of those boats? I’m sure I would have rammed something. Good for you though, doing something daring and out of the ordinary.

  13. Those are gorgeous! I wouldn’t have thought of renting a boat like that for vacation. You must have had such a great time!

  14. Fascinating pictures and your trip looks like it was a great one. Thanks for sharing.

  15. That looks like such a great trip! And what an unusual looking boat!
