What a great night we had last night. So many congratulations hugs and kisses went to Ian that he was quite overcome. Some of our fellow boaters and friends piled onto Nb Icing owned by Dennis and Margaret. It's the designated 'party boat' because of it's long front deck and ample room inside. Beer was drunk and loads of laughter and merriment as well as a game of Mexican Train was enjoyed by all. We eventually fell back into the boat just before midnight having had a wonderful night.. So as promised here are the photos of yesterdays continuing site work..
|Decision was made to use the large tent as the tombola and book stall and the smaller tent as the bric a brac. There is so much stuff for the bric a brac stall that I expect we will be spilling out onto the grass.|
|Bunting goes up|
|Another grass cut hopefully the last one before the event.|
|Wonder when the bunting will go up on the boats. 16 boats by 9am|
So now for today............
OMG. What can I tell you about today! First we struggled to put the bunting up on our boat. The wind tried very hard to snatch the bunting from our hands and send it across the canal. We eventually acheived our goal and while Ian went off to help with the electrics, I took Jade below lock to see how many boats had turned up.
|Great to see so many boats.|
|More stakes go in.|
|Quite near to our boat as you can see. Thats my bird feeder to the left of the picture.|
|The birds and bees and even the flies do it!|
