Croxley Green, Grand Union

A day of incidents.  Firstly, got into the first lock of the day (about 500 yards) and then David spent 1/2 hour down the weed hatch removing rope and a jumper.

Anyone want a lock cottage - for sale at £435,000 at Kings Langley.  Being sold through Proffitt and Holt. 

Don't think I'd call my company Proffitt.

Then we found a semi-sunk canoe (but no canoeist).

 The second boat we met had a crew of baby Sea Cadets.  Cute or what?  All very willing, but I ended up doing most of the work!

After getting a pumpout and diesel at Bridgewater Boats we moored up just around the corner (no room on the visitor moorings- too many people living there) and enjoyed the sunshine.

We met several boats at locks today.  No-one came to help, just waited until the lock was ready for them and no-one slowed down when they went past us after we moored up.

A decoupaged train, though you can't see it in this picture.

I matted the picture onto gold and a sort of sage coloured card.

A panel was cut from green stripy card and the vertical edges were shaped with a Martha Steward punch.  This was stuck down onto a white card blank and the decoupaged panel as stuck down on top.

Three black peel-off circles were stuck across the bottom of the panel.
