At last Judy and I were able to arrange a mutually convenient day for a paddle on the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal .
This was the first time this year when I was able to rescue my sandals from the shoe cupboard. It was a lovely day with spring flowers along the canal side and young ducklings skittering along the water.
We launched at Talybont On Usk and headed west. The tow path was fairly busy with walkers and cyclists one of whom for whatever reason was wearing one of those life jackets which inflates when it hits the water. I can only assume his cycling skills left a lot to be desired!
There were good views of the Brecon Beacons with Pen y Fan standing tall.
One of the narrow boats moored up was called the Hannah Snell, click the link for her details, very odd.
Back at Talybont we reloaded the canoe and retired to the cafe for coffee and cake.
