Clayton-le-Moors, Leeds and Liverpool Canal

Goodness knows where the rest of the car went!

We were off early again, and through Church (one of these days I'll get to visit the church at Church to see the 2 Burne-Jones windows) and on through the swing bridges and past nesting swans.

Gardener (see Granny Buttons here) was not performing this morning - too early and too cold I suspect - and The Albion was not open.

We were moored up by 0900 at another of our favourite spots - just past the Foster's Swing Bridge. There are three bollards there, though the wind is so strong we probably don't have to tie up at all. The views are stunning and if you ignore the vehicle noise from the motorway it is almost bliss.

The Spirit of the Wind went past in the afternoon and there is now another boat moored up behind us, but apart from that we have not seen another boat on the move all day.

So - a pink card base; a peel-off flower in a vase stuck onto some acetate and painted with glass paints (and Snowpake for the white bits!). A brown ribbon across the card and the acetate matted onto brown and gold card.
