CRT have today put rubber mats down on sections of the towpath in the vicinity of the Crick Boat Show.
The mats, though, are as nothing compared with the temporary bridge providing access to the show site from the towpath. This is an amazingly robust-looking steel (or is it aluminium?) construction soaring over the canal and must be costing thousands.
The weather has certainly improved (will it hold for the show itself?) with wall-to-wall sunshine most of the day. Despite the still cool breeze I was inspired to dig out the barbecue (first time this year).
Adrian and Chris from Essence, fellow BCFers, came round for a drink and a chat this evening. We all enjoyed some of Jan's tiffin, which she made this afternoon. Scrummy!
