Preparing for the festival

We got up early thinking today was the day they were legging a boat through Blisworth tunnel ....Wrong!!!! it's tomorrow. So with being up early we, with everyone else cleaning there boat, decided to polish Derwent6. When that was done, yes it rained... Only a quick sharp shower, but it rained. They moved the two working boats along side us and moved everyone around at the top of the locks and marquees were going up everywhere for the show tomorrow. In the evening we meet up with a few friends, old and new, who started turning up with any instrument they could find, we all had a bit of a ding dong throwing in a few vocals. We came away from there at about midnight. It did seem a nice long day !!!
