Marsworth, Grand Union
Not the sight you want to see at 0630 in the morning!
And, yes, we did miss it (the picture was taken after we'd passed).
We are now breasted up on a permanent mooring as there are two boats on the visitor moorings, both have been there for some time - one has a TV aerial on some sort of scaffolding poles and a printed piece of paper with guidance for boaters with no home mooring.
Took the bus into Aylesbury for a mooch.
The locks will open at 10am tomorrow and there is a widebeam in front who got here before us.
The last of my Mothers' Day cards using the pack of toppers of Victorian ladies.
I matted some pink and yellow patterned paper onto pink card and stuck it onto a white card blank, after wrapping some cotton lace along the left hand side. A pink panel was made using pink, patterned paper and more pink card. I edged the top and bottom with scalloped scissors. The topper was then added to the panel and it was stuck onto the card in the bottom right hand corner. 3 pink pearls were added to the top right hand corner and a bunch of pink paper rosebuds was stuck down with glue dots and covered with a white organdie bow.
