Yet another early, grey start to a very grey day. But at least it didn't rain until this evening.
We spent the morning popping on and off the river onto canal cuttings. Some of the landings off the river were fun, especially with little fat legs and a sore Achilles Tendon. The old life jacket was being put on and taken off - it is such a nuisance for doing the locks in, but I'm not going to have the words "She had a life jacket but it was in the cupboard" on my tombstone.
These three photographs are of the Figure of Three Locks (though there are only two!)
A big cavity in the lock swim embankment.
What is left on the balance beam on the top gate.
We are now above Battyeford Lock and ready for the run into Huddersfield tomorrow.
And two cards. A photograph of speedwell growing in the side of a lock wall. In the original I just mounted it onto silver card and put it onto a white card.
But I thought it needed something. So I added this embroidered blue butterfly. What do you think?
