Narrowboat passes with 23 on board

We could hardly believe our eyes as a narrowboat passed us at Yardley Wood with people and a lit barbecue on the roof.

The steerer proudly told me that there were 23 people on board. I couldn't find my camera immediately.

The boat happened to be passing under a shaft of sunlight, thus heightening the drama of the smoke.

A worse drama would be when the weight of the crowd on top causes the boat to topple. I wonder how many it would take. Of course everyone was having a whale of a time.
