Great Bedwyn, Kennet and Avon Canal
Is this the winding hole????
Today I saw the first yellow flag, such a beautiful flower, but only lasts about a week and they are all finished.
It was up to the short summit and then down to Crofton. We decided to go on to Great Bedwyn. We had rain and hail, but mostly it was dry.
This floating "thing" was moored on the lock landing at the bottom of the Crofton Locks. It had come from the cottage in the middle of the next pound. Presume they use it for shopping and have a car parked by Crofton somewhere. Anyway, it was right in the middle of the lock landing and there was no room to get on or off the boat without difficulty.
Unfortunately when we got to Great Bedwyn there was no room on the visitor moorings and the pound was full of boats, so we had to tac onto the end of the next lock landing, using the bollard on the end and a spike at the back.
A simple Harry Potter card, can't remember where I found the picture, but I die cut it into an oval and matted it onto white card and then blue card which I cut with deckle edged scissors then stuck it onto a white card blank.
