Just for a change, we booked a trip on a boat! The Manchester Ship Canal. A six hour journey from Liverpool to Salford Quays is run by Mersey Ferries, one way by boat and then a bus back.
We left Liverpool Pierhead at 1110 and set of at very low tide for the first lock into the Canal. There does not seem to be a speed limit here and the wash from the boat would make most narrowboaters blanch.
The creme, though, was going through the Barton Swing Bridge and seeing it from a different angle. We have seen the bridge open a couple of times, but to actually have it open for us to go "under"?!
I saw this moorhen on her nest outside the Bishop of York's Palace on the River Ouse. I thought it an ideal picture for a new home card. So it was matted onto white, black, pink and more black card and stuck onto a white card blank.
I made the sentiment on the computer and matted that onto black card to finish it off.
