canal boat trip I took in the 80's. The boats have changed a bit but the canals are the same. A few things stand out in my memory: the Wedgewood Visitors Center and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct (breathtaking and frightening – my first and only case of fear of heights). I suppose I should also mention my two pre-schoolers and the fact that I was pregnant. The country side was lovely. Nothing is better than finding a pub on its good day at the end of a canal drive. I still have the hand painted slate coasters I got on that trip.
