Mill Bank Lock, Calder and Hebble Canal

 Spring is springing, lots of green trees and Broad Cut Low Lock as seen from the river.  We saw lots of swallows today too.

We left really early again in a thick mist, passing Hug getting ready to set off.  Then, a bit further on a cruiser came out of the mist towards us.  Just past that and another boat was moving in front of us.  And it was only 7.30 on a Sunday morning.

We were able to get all three boats into Fall Ings lock and then Hug and Mr David travelled on together to the top of Figure of Three locks, where we decided to stay for the rest of the day.

We were grateful for the help with locking from Elaine and John on Hug - John being very fit!

During the afternoon the pound seemed to be getting very low so we moved up through Mill Bank lock for the night.

A clean and simple card (CAS - 2 layers and/or two colours + black and white).  I stamped the flowers onto white card and mounted this onto gold mirror card and green pearlescent card.  This was then stuck down onto a white card blank.
