Bridge 42, Grand Union Canal
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.
