Crick Boat Show 2018

We were at the Crick Boat Show primarily to help at the Boaters' Christian Fellowship stand over the long weekend. I always enjoy walking round the trade stands and meeting friends. On the Sunday the BCF holds a service in the entertainments marquee, popularly known as the beer tent.

After a time of worship led by Tim, his wife Tracey spoke on the question "Do you know where you are going?"

The service was well attended, with numbers estimated at about 100.

The BCF stand was in the usual place in the corner of the largest marquee and attracted a steady stream of visitors.

The weather was remarkably kind, with plenty of warm sunshine over the entire three days. The sky got very dark at about 5pm on Sunday, but the rain held off until the show had closed for the day.

I got wet helping to secure a boat which had come adrift. No, I didn't fall in: the expected deluge of rain came.

In the evening John and Jane came for a meal on Jubilee, then the four of us returned to the show site for the Abba tribute band Abba Revival.

For once, a band playing songs I mostly knew!
