Top Claydon Locks, Oxford Canal

David brought me a cup of tea in bed at 0545 and set off. A dull, cold day.

We had planned to go as far as Cropredy today, but by the time we got to the moorings at the top of Claydon Locks it was beginning to rain. So we stopped here. So I am typing this up, by the fire and listening to the rain pattering on the roof.

Yesterday Ian and Alison went past on Gosty Hill, but we were too slow the stop them. Then today we passed them again, but it was too early and there was no sign of life on the boat. Later this evening they went past again and we were able to buy some diesel and coal after they had winded and were heading back towards Napton.
Still not seen any wild roses since leaving Leamington Spa. So here is a card that I made yonks ago. I matted a piece of bright pink card(after cutting a wavy edge to the bottom) onto silver mirror card and wrapped some lime green ribbon around it before fixing it to the lighter pink card.
The photograph was matted onto white, pink and silver card and then fixed onto the pink panel.
