Back on Chirk Bank. And I again had a companion from Llangollen. My old friend Ratnapani who lives in North Wales joined me for the trip down the valley from Llangollen, across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and through the two tunnels and second aqueduct to Chirk Bank.
Previously, whilst Stowford was moored in the basin at Llangollen I visited Khemajoti in Bristol and stayed at Ashisthana for a couple of days over Christmas – we played board games, watched movies, talked and ate an excellent Christmas dinner with all the trimmings.
Back on the boat I enjoyed the snow and hosted Janaka on his way from Vajraloka to Bristol and had a visit from Hridaya and Vajrapushpa and their two daughters Anna and Sophia. A whirl of social activity!!
