Gas Street Basin

I don't know. We bumble along for days on end with noting going on and then, suddenly, lots of things happen!

We took the train and taxi to Braunston to see the working boats and get lots of pictures and meet up with Chris Caterall of Canals and Rivers. On the way back we popped over to Centenary Square to see the Veterans' Whatever. Lots of old soldiers and young soldiers, stalls etc and a band.

As we were leaving there we saw Claire Short MP and David couldn't resist introducing himself and thanking her for her help regarding the noisy bars around here.

Then it was back to the boat to watch the Dragon Boat Races.

As we arrived back our newest moorer was just mooring up. I have not met her yet but she has a cute little yellow boat called Amy.

It was such a lovely afternoon that we were all sat out when we noticed a young Asian couple on the balcony of the defunct James Brindley pub. They kept us entertained for about 45 minutes as we watched his bum going up and down!!! You have to admire their stamina, even if her father would probably kill her if he found out.

Now for something more mundane. Sorry! A card with a picture of President. I have just made 12 - all different, though some of the photos are the same.

This one has a red panel which I Cuttlebugged. The picture is matted onto red and black card and I added three silver dots to the bottom right hand corner.
