|Cath did some very long dog walks, hence pictures of boat underway.|
|We don't seem to be stirring mud too badly at this point.|
|Allowed to roam with no worries of any roads, Odin loved it.|
We booked into "Shacky" late, so were told we would need to moor away from the area reserved for historic boats, although there was plenty of space in this when we turned up. Not wishing to upset the organisers though, we did as we were told, and managed to just squeeze into a space right by what looked like it would be one of the entrances to the festival site - one of the advantages of being only 40 feet, of course. However we could not get the boat anywhere near the bank, and as Odin is currently still freaked by walking a plank, we decided he probably couldn't actually accompany us to the festival itself.
