We were up and off by 6.30 and then waited 1/2 hr for the tunnel to open at 0800, we were in it by 5 mins past and out again by 40 mins past. Coming down Heartbreak Hill we met a nasty single hander who complained when I tried to help him and then started shouting and swearing at me, then he had a go at David when he came to my defence. We just let him get on with it in the end and left him to it. Meanwhile there was a queue of boats waiting to come down.
Today we did 6 miles and 12 locks in 3 3/4 hrs - no wonder they call it Heartbreak Hill.
Saw a kingfisher today, a very rare sight
One of my waterways themed cards. On this one I matted the photograph onto holographic silver card and light blue card. I created a banner to go behind with patterned paper and plain blue card and added a 3D butterfly to finish it off.
