Worcester, Worcester & Birmingham Canal

 I managed to keep David in Droitwich until this morning and we slipped out at 0615.  Even so one boat had already passed us before then.

We set off down the Barge Canal - a bit boring and very like a river.  Most of the time we were in a channel with reeds on both sides blocking out any views.

About 4 locks from the end the canal became covered in duck weed and the smell!!

We passed this lovely lock weir on the way.

The River Severn was reached by 1000 and we set off downstream to Worcester, mooring up on the river.  But there was a ledge and the gunnels were just underneath it, then a speedboat went past and we started bobbing up and down so we left after 15 minutes and moved into Diglis Basin.

We managed to sneak into the disabled spot and got some electricity so I did three loads of washing and we got the ironing done too.

Another Forever Friends card.  I used a white card blank with the fold at the top.  I used some brown and pink card which came from a cake box!  I cut some pink card using a border punch and stuck it along the bottom of the card and stuck it all down onto the card.  Then I cut two scalloped ovals in white and pink and added that to the card with the decopaged bear on top.  Three glass jewels were then fixed to the top right hand corner.
