What a day! Day one of the weekend Black Country Boating Festival and it's been perfect. Warm and sunny, but not hot and with little breeze. The punters flocked in, some of them playing the "boat race" game on the Boaters' Christian Fellowship stand outside our boat.
This gives some idea of the popularity of the festival - the crowds are mainly locals who love the event.
Tomorrow's forecast is for slightly cloudier and cooler conditions, so perhaps it won't be quite so busy.
