2nd post of the day - please scroll down to read earlier post

Well it turned in to such a nice day that we decided to go out and play tourists so we left home with the intention of walking round Savernake Forest - never made it, took a detour and found a cute little village where we saw a narrowboat negotiating a lock on the Kennet & Avon canal (not something I've ever seen before) . . .  and this CUTE line of geese who weren't at all phased by their photoshoot!

Then we adjourned to Marlborough for a looksee round this historic market town and stopped for a bite of lunch at the Polly Tearooms - check out the link here, how cute is it?

And then back home via the tiny little hamlet (no more than about 20-25 houses) of Moorend - check out the family DUCK! Handsome family aren't they? We called to them and they paddled (like heck) over to us!! Bless

Right, now I've had my day as a tourist AND I've tracked down some cardboard - I'm off to check out my challenge entries for Craft Mad & Loving It and Simply Less Is More - do check back some time soon to see what I came up with.

Looks like you had a fab day out Mrs K! I am always fascinated by the barges trying to negotiate the locks. Have you ever been to the Caen Hill, locks Devizes? Absolutely amazing!
