Well we promised to try for better photos than yesterday.
Not to be I'm afraid! The day started wet, and just got wetter, and photography was rather hindered by water on cameras lenses.
Anyway hopefully this brief selection gives a flavour, if only of boats in the rain, without the big crowds the organisers would no doubt have liked.
(As with all the blog pictures, clicking on any small image should give you a larger version).
Whereas here Kestrel's butty Vienna, (here carrying it's alternate form "Verbena"), is being loaded from Trevor' Maggs' motor Corona, (by some very wet looking chaps!). They couldn't understand why we had no enthusiasm for mucking in!
So that was our first event with our own boat. Practice for Braunston in just two weeks time, but I do feel for the Stoke Bruerne organisers and traders on this very wet Sunday.
Miles: 4.0, Locks: 4
Total for weekend Miles 6.0, Locks 8
