Bridge 42, Grand Union Canal

 Coming down Whilton locks one bank was covered in violets and snowdrops.  Very pretty.

There were masses of boats around today.  It was more like the lower part of the Kennet and Avon Canal - on tickover most of the way.

The sun came out and the temperature rose, it was lovely and a joy to be out boating.

I thought Monday was washing day!

We have had to change our plans for the cruising season.  We planned to go down the Oxford Canal, The Thames and the K&A before heading for London and the Queen's Jubilee Pageant.

But we have to do a rehearsal so we are now heading for Limehouse and an Easter trip with the St Pancras Boating Club up to Brentford for a beer festival and then back to Limehouse.  We have invited our friends on Wildflower to join us, hence we had to pick up the life jackets yesterday.

So - a card depicting the Limehouse Basin.

Just a white card blank with a red card strip at the bottom and some blue ribbon stuck over the join and tied in a knot.

The photograph was matted onto white card and trimmed with deckle edged scissors and then matted onto red card before sticking onto the front of the card above the ribbon.

Did you know there's another boat on your home mooring and plugged into your electric supply?
