From little Dinghy's to big Narrow boats

Hi all,
Happy Easter to everyone.  Hope the weather is dry for you and the cold is not spoiling the holiday.  Chris has had a busy week as she is on half term break and so she decided to give the bungalow its first thorough spring clean.. I think she feels happier now the place sparkles and has that fresh spring clean look about it.  I have to say its noticeable how much cleaner the place looks.

Today, Saturday, two instructors and I had 12 youngsters out sailing on the river who had been on our club training course last year.  The idea being a refresher course before the training starts this year.  Many of the students had remembered quite a bit so it was nice to see them enjoying themselves although busy for us, getting the boats rigged and them packed away afterwards.

This afternoon we took ourselves up the road to Ellesmere Port Canal boat museum for the afternoon and met up with Jo and Keith on Hadar again at the boat festival.  There was a lot going on and plenty of working boats to admire, some well known like fly boat Saturn looking splendid after being repainted.

Towy was there, I've helped out on this boat in the past

Another well know boat, Gifford

Saturn looking lovely in her new paint.

Chris and I were invited on board for a look.
