I met Andy the photographer at 7.30 this morning in Towcester, and we travelled first to Swanley Bridge Marina on the Llangollen. It was raining here, clear beyond Birmingham, and then foggy. For the boat test, we did the internal photos first, then as the mist began to lift we took the boat out for the running shots — which Andy says worked really well, with the boat in sunshine and mist in the background.
Then we set off for Garstang and a marina on the Lancaster Canal, where it was also sunny enough. The drive back seemed like a long way; actually it was a long way. I’m staying on the boat tonight and will head home tomorrow.
