Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal - day 2

Goytre Wharf to The Coach snd Horses Inn, Llangynidr, Sunday 11th August

This canal is approximately 45 miles long so it divides into 3 x 15 miles which is more than the 12 mile target I am setting myself at the moment. You can't just stop for the night when you have walked your daily target, so mileages get messed about which found me walking about 17 miles today, and tomorrow to finish in Brecon is about 11 miles. The plus is that I am now fitter after nearly two weeks walking to have tackled some of these longer mileages. You youngsters who read this stuff will one day come to reassessing your realistic daily mileages . It is sobering to find when you think you are walking fairly quickly you are consistently being passed by local dog walkers.

Welshpaddler enlightened me about the jazz festival in Brecon so I expected the worst at The Coach and Horses at Llangynidr and they were full, but in line with my Welsh experiences they took the trouble to phone a nearby b an b and another inn which were both full, but they then let me camp at the pub.

I am now eating and drinking well at The Coach and Horses and they had no problem finding me a table with a plug point to charge up the millstones round my neck

R - Good to hear you are enjoying Wind in the Willows.

Sorry for not responding sooner, but keeping up with everything on the blog when out in the wilds is not easy. I am back home now.
