Lymm, Bridgewater Canal

Back at Lymm. The picture shows a nearly empty stretch of moorings. Although it is 24 hour moorings with no return within 3 days - three of the boats are in exactly the same place that they were at over a week ago. Seems BW are not the only people with overstayers.

We got some very expensive coal from Thorne Marine as we passed. They don't do Calor Gas, so we didn't get any, and they don't take debit cards. Obviously don't want our custom there then yet again.

We are trying to decide whether or not to go to Liverpool to visit the new link which should be opened very soon and maybe fit in the Grand National. We did the Grand National several years ago and the Mersey Cruising Club looked after us admirably. Then maybe to do the Huddersfield Canals providing we have the time.

A belated Mothers' Day card. I have had some lovely sparkly, feathery butterflies for ages and needed an excuse to make a card with one. They are so delicate that they could not possibly be posted without damage.

I covered the card with some turquoise and lilac paper and inked the edges with a green ink. I don't like doing this as I usually mess it up, but this time it seemed to work. I added a the turquoise and gold butterfly and a turquoise organza bow. I printed off the message and matted it onto some lilac card and inked the edges again with the green ink pad.
