Saturday 21 Aug 2010

Last night the wind dropped and the sky cleared to give a clear starlit  night.

This morning we woke to thick drizzle that lasted all morning but cleared just before lunch when we walked down to The Folly to enjoy the afternoons entertainment. We had a couple of light showers but nothing to much and some very good acts includingDSCF4467a a skiffle group, but the highlight was a dance group  of youngsters that just flew through the air, they were a mixture of sizes from about 4' maybe a little less to 5 ' 6".

 

DSCF4513 Then at 5 pm the sky just opened  and the rain hammered down, the band continued to play and most people headed for the beer tent. When the rain stopped we headed up the flight back to the boat to find quite a bottle neck. The Coventry Canal Society boat had got stuck in the second lock as the pound was so low, first he was wedged then on the cill, once clear he was stuck in the bridge hole and Nick Wolf was there letting down water and we ended up assisting.
Around 6-30 we headed back to the Folly to enjoy the evening entertainment, luckily the weather was much kinder to us all and we heard some good music.
