Cars, Motorbikes, Waterfalls, Steam Trains and a Wedding.

Another packed lunch in a back pack and we set off up the canal towards Horseshoe Falls. First we came across the end of the navigable section of the canal.

This was a wedding train, with full wedding party, and even the wedding cake was on-board.

We moved to stand on the footbridge over the line, and got chatting to what was the groom, and low-and-behold he is a boater too, and knew all about Hadar, what a small world. Later this evening the whole wedding party is having a trip on the trip boat from Llangollen to Pontcysyllte aqueduct and back. What a great idea for a different sort of wedding.

Keith.
