Crick Show - day 4

We had a very enjoyable evening on board Dolce Far Niente last night, with some excellent food and wine.

Today we had a fairly lazy start.  Adrian headed off to the show at around 10, while I helped James from Chance with a car shuffle, and we both did some shopping on the way back.  Back at the show, Adrian went to look at boats, and we bought some of the straw logs to see what they're like.  We also bought a little adaptor so the light fitting in the engine room can take and LED (I bought several LEDs earlier in the weekend to convert all the ceiling lights; we did the wall lights and the galley last year).

There didn't seem to be many visitors to the show today, so many boat builders weren't very busy so it was easy to catch several of them for a few minutes.  Mid afternoon the announcement was made for the winner of the vote for Favourite Boat at the show, and the MGM boat, Snail's Pace, was victorious.

Tonight, we're off to The Moorings restaurant just over the bridge with the Braidbar Owners' Group.  Then it's an early start tomorrow, with Adrian needing to go to work, and Neil and Kath from Herbie joining me to take Briar Rose back to base.  The Watford Locks are apparently remaining open all hours for the next couple of days, to try to reduce the queues.
