Great Bedwyn, Kennet and Avon Canal
The weather was good, so we set off early again. But didn't get far before the showers began.
The lock cottage above Hungerford Marsh Lock (can't recall the name of the lock at the moment) is looking very sad.
This sign was posted on the front door. So maybe it will be chocolatey boxy in a few years time.
We phoned Norman who is going to look at the boat and discovered we are now in a "black spot" - no TV signal, no telephone signal. Nadda!
Managed to get a message to him and he is coming to see the boat.
I took the bus into Marlborough for a look-see and got soaking wet in the rain. Spent £70 on a new pair of Hunter wellies.
I sent David up to London on the train to buy himself a new camera. It has rained nearly all day again and I never got off the boat.
Yesterday someone checked out boat number and today the enforcement officer asked us when we were leaving. As it is a 48 hour mooring and we haven't been here 48 hours yet...
A K&A bridge and lock in the sunshine.
I stuck some green hessian type stuff onto some orange card and matted that onto holographic card. This was stuck across the centre of a white card blank.
The photo was then matted onto holographic card, bright green card and orange card and fixed to the card blank with sticky fixers.
