Devizes, Kennet & Avon Canal
Two sights today. David didn't notice the head sticking out of the back of this boat. He was having his breakfast fag.
And this one is on a 48 hour visitor mooring. Notice the stuff on the towpath and the duck house. Some 48 hours!
It was a very early start as we had an appointment with Richard at Devizes Marina to look at the gearbox. It is only 10 1/4 miles but it took us 3 3/4 hours because there are so many boats moored precariously along the towpath that you can hardly get out of tick-over.
The "o" ring was replaced, along with oil in the gearbox and we managed to just squeeze into a space on the moorings at Devizes wharf at 1pm.
A sunny, sunflower. That is to remind us that it is June, and it is Summertime, and there should be sunshine. But there isn't.
The card began with a silk sunflower, bought in a bunch from a charity shop. I cut off the back and stuck it onto a die-cut circle and then stuck that onto a white hammered card blank.
