Park Bridge 8, Shropshire Union Canal
A really late start, for us, today, 0900!! Mainly because there had been lots of rain in the night, and it was still a bit damp.
The first 5 locks were for us, and then the 10th, but the really bad news was that the van selling the bacon butties has gone. The factory opposite has closed down.
We went for a slow trip down the locks, it took us 3 3/4 hours, not to bad for not rushing. We met 3 boats coming up the locks, but the last two were right at the beginning.
Signs of Autumn everywhere, lots of berries on trees and bushes, and this lovely group of fungi at the side of one of the locks.
Then a right turn at the junction and a left onto the Shroppie and we stopped just before Bridge 8, the first set of moorings with no ledge!!! A couple of hours nap time and I managed to stay up until 0830!! Only one lock tomorrow, whey hey!
A Forever Friends bear with lots of boxes, has it been shopping, or is it bringing gifts? Anyway it was matted onto a fancy oval die-cut and pink dotty oval.
I covered the front of a white card blank with pink dotty paper on the bottom and white with pink hearts on the top and a pink stripe across the join. A butterfly in the top right h and corner and another on the left hand side of the printed sentiment.
