Radford Semele - Grand Union Canal

 I don't know how many times I have been through Shrewley tunnel before, but I never noticed the small tunnel at the side before!

 A nice early start and we were at the top of the Hatton flight by 0845 to discover that a boat was 3 locks in front of us, going down!!!

This magnificent gentlemen was watching us do the top lock.

Then a volunteer lockie turned up and helped us down to the 4th lock where Silver Lining was waiting for us.  So instead of stopping off at he garage for the night we went right down to the bottom with the help of two volunteers and the crew of the other boat.  And then on through the Cape locks and when we got to Tesco (to do a heavy lift shop) we discovered it was closed (Easter Sunday).  So it was on to here, one of our favourite spots on the GU.  We got here just as the rain showers set in.

I don't like his card very much, here goes.  A brown card base with a panel of patterned paper matted onto dark brown, cream and light brown card on a dark brown card base.  Brown ribbon is wrapped around the panel.  The two bird cage panels are also matted onto cream, light and dark brown card and fixed to the card and two brown bows added at the tops.
