For our trip we chose the gentle pace of the canals.
As we enjoyed our slow pace of travel the children stood looking out of a hatch at wildlife, other boats or colouring in welsh scenes on the postcard pack we had bought them.
We had afternoon tea (welsh style) by having Bara Brith with our tea. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bara_brith
We went over the aqueduct, and then back on a bus to town.
