Elaine Wilson of Eccentric England took her first canal boat holiday in October.
She and her friend Julie set off from our narrowboat hire base at Whixall Marina. This is on the Prees Branch of the Llangollen Canal.
They pottered slowly along, getting the hang of the steering.
Elaine describes the wildlife they saw, and the places where they moored up.
They visited Ellesmere, in the heart of the Shropshire Lake District. They also visited the historic town of Whitchurch.
