Below Widewater Lock, Grand Union
Heap of the week?
Took the boat across the canal to the Tesco mooring and did a bit of shopping before we set off. Another short day, only travelling 4 miles and 5 locks.
We met up with The Cheese Boat on their way back from London. Of course, we met them too soon, I had not made the card they wanted, so I had to walk up to the Post Office at Harefield in the afternoon when I had finished it.
I hadn't realized how useful the stop was. Two convenience stores, Post Office, Chinese Takeaway, Fish and Chip Shop, Hairdressers (of course, you can always find a hairdressers) and a taxi office. There is even a bus to Uxbridge. Not forgetting the pub below the bridge.
A card for Grandad, or a retirement card.
The stuck a piece of check paper onto a blue card blank and the added the decoupaged figure and bits.
