Retrospective post for Sunday 7th June
We are now well into the festivals and galas season, so will be attempting to attend as many by boat as we are able, although with so much to do on "Flamingo", we are resigned we will be doing less this year than we might have in previous years.

So, once again, we find ourselves into planning logistics of moving boats about, and being able to get back to retrieve cars. As our son Michael uses one of our cars during the week, any short boat moves involving a "two car shuffle" can only be done at a weekend. Thus we elected to move "Sickle" up to Stoke Bruerne the weekend before the festival.

We had an easy passage up the locks, but having started late at the other end, and hit several hold ups on the way, our actual arrival wsas quite late. We elected to grab a quick meal at the pub, before starting to round up the cars, but at least "Sickle" was now where she needed to be.
