A Bank Holiday weekend and the sun shone!

Sells Green is a lovely spot to stop, or is it just that every time I have been to Sells Green the sun has shone brightly. Just the mention of the name brings forth a smile and the thought of lovely weather.
I have gently been preparing more of the roof top prior to painting, sanding, rubbing down, rust treatment etc. I have now got as far as the undercoat so you can see I have done something!
The middle section is now in grey primer
Moving on from Sells Green as we did, there are a couple of swing bridges on the way to Seend.
Down the Seend locks, empty the loos on the way. The bank is good between locks 17 & 18 so we stop again for the night. We are not in any hurry.
Sunday we moved on to Semington and were able to get a space on the 24 hour moorings. It looks as if the Semington Dry Dock is well patronised, it was full of boats and others were queuing to gain access. It is great to see canal-side businesses thriving.
Then, on Bank Holiday Monday in the glorious sunshine we move leisurely on to Hilperton, passing this swan's nest.
