Hack Green Locks, Shropshire Union Canal

It was wall to wall boats along the Middlewich Branch. I don't think there was a point when we could not see a boat either moored in front or
behind us all the way.

We had the usual early start, though this time in the mist, but we were not early enough to sneak past the Shropshire Union Canal Society's lock wheeling at Cholmondley lock. Not that we mind giving them a donation as they do so much good work and all their moorings across the whole Shroppie systems are marvelous and always just in the right spot.
A really hot, sunny afternoon which we spent above the locks at Hack Green. Still haven't visited the Bunker yet though!
This poor little bear with a plaster makes a lovely get well card. He is stamped and handpainted on watercolour paper and fixed with sticky fixers onto a white background which I matted onto gold, green and red card. The sentiment is a silver peel-off which is matted in the same way. The base card was white.
