Ellesmere, Llangollen Canal

Funny sort of day, really. We set off with the intention of going down the Montgomery Canal. I had got it into my head that the canal was now open right down to Newtown.

So we moored up above the locks and waited for the BW office to open so that we could book a passage down the locks. Needless to say, this took some time but they finally answered and we booked in.

But, when the lock keeper arrived he just mentioned that we could only get as far as Mastermyn (or however you spell it, haven't got the Nicholsons with me at the moment). So, as we have already done that bit already, it seemed a bit of a palaver to go down all those locks to get the The Queen's Head to get a bus into Shrewsbury, we cancelled and went on to Ellsemere.

We passed this hirer trying to get his boat into the wharf. The man on the boat in front was hanging on the bow rope so tightly (so they wouldn't hit his boat) that they couldn't manoeuvre the boat across the canal!

One more very simple card. A white base. I cut a pink circle and a scalloped circle with the Nestabilities in the Cuttlebug and stuck them down. I then added a "bought" topper and a butterfly
