Day Two Hundred Sixty-Seven

UK - Autherley Junction

Sent by: ry22
From: United Kingdom
For: UK/Ireland to the World Tag
Notes: The caption on the back of this card says "Autherley Junction where the Shropshire Union Canal leaves the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal".  It is located in the West Midlands, in west central England.  The boat in the background is next to the stop lock, which prevents water from passing between the two canals.

UK - Carradale Bay and the Isle of Arran, Argyll, Scotland

For: 12 Viewcards in an Envelope Round Robin - Group 145
Notes: Here you can see Carradale Bay and the Isle of Arran.  The isle is the largest island in the Firth of Clyde, off of the west coast of Scotland. Arran has been continuously inhabited for thousands of years, and currently has a population of about 4,600 people.  The main industry is tourism, as the island features a castle, a resort and a number of golf courses.

The Firth of Clyde? Is he related to the Firth of Colin?
