Banbury Canal Day

I took the motorbike up to Banbury Canal Day last Sunday. I wasn’t feeling that great but it was lovely to see the town bursting at the scenes with people and stalls all celebrating the canal and ridiculously hot weather.  I had a great time catching up with people and looking around.  There was something for everyone.

and it was so good seeing Atlanta in the dry dock looking really splendid

There were pirates




of various sorts (not to mention Jolly Boatman)


the French Market was great: DSC00571 DSC00572

Horse and cart


a bit of sawing


a bit of dancing


The market, people and canal – quite a scene, quite a crowd.

Hello Bones - we pulled in to moor outside The Boat pub late yesterday - we're wondering if you're at home today? We'll be leaving Thrupp about lunch time tomorrow (Monday). We'd love to say hello in person. Kind regards Carol and George NB Rock n Roll

Hi Carol,
Thanks - I won't join you for dinner as I have some stuff prepared (and I am allergic to everything under the sun), but I will pop around for a drink afterwards! Wonderful!
