Yesterday we stopped of at Bev and Geoff's Pitstop for diesel and a pumpout. You can just see the stand with all my cards on by the front door. Don't they look smart?

Later we met up with our friends on Wildflower they were on their way to Newbury and we were on our way from Newbury. We met up at the moorings at Woolhampton and had a great lunch in The Angel pub.

The swing bridge at Woolhampton is still not working properly and there is a BW man there to work it for boaters. He was supposed to arrive this morning at 0900 but we did not see him until 1000, then the Padworth swing bridge was being worked on, but was open. Passing a boat just past Ufton bridge said that they had had to wait 20 minutes for BW to come out and fix that one and they had been stuck at Tyle Mill for 2 days because of the broken swing bridge there. Fortunately we did not have any trouble at either, but it just about sums up the state of the K&A these days.

This horse pulls the trip boat from Kintbury to Hungerford. He stopped by the cottages opposite the wharf while the boat turned around and a lady came out of one of the cottages and fed him carrots. I matted the photograph and also printed out a larger picture on plain paper using the "draft" option on the printer. I then matted that in the same way and added the ribbon and photo mounts.

I have made a series of cards using this photo because I just love it, so more to come.
