Free Narrow Boat Bonanza
I just happened to hear on the radio that there was going to be a Narrow Boat Festival over the May Bank Holiday weekend at Little Venice in the middle of London. Remembering a wonderful family holiday in a narrow boat on the Kennet Avon Canal many years ago I decided that we just had to go and check it out. Have "free travel pass" must travel!
Well what an amazing surprise was in store for us, there were hundreds of beautifully painted narrow boats and thousands of trendy, beautiful and eccentric people.
Having dined on German sausages and wandered around the canal paths and all the very interesting stalls we managed to secure some seats. There we could bask in the sunshine, watch boats and people parade by and listen to the jazz band performing on the island. A free day out doesn't get much better than that!
Whilst sitting down we were joined by two lovely Australian ladies who I chatted with whilst Rosalind had a siesta! Topics covered were how to blog more effectively and their positive impressions of our Church's advertising response to the Book of Mormon musical currently showing in London.
If you are near London next May watch out for this narrow boat event, if the weather is kind you will really enjoy it.
