Thank you to everyone who came to see us and fellow traders at the Cosgrove Canal Festival last weekend, to support the work of the Buckingham Arm restoration.
At my request, on the way down to the show, some cosmetics needed to be done..
.. beginning with the removal of the cratch board for stripping...
..removal of very rudimentary 'Roses' painted when our butty, as we now know it, was first being created in the car park at Chapel Hill, many years ago..
to be replaced by a more professional looking plain (but with imitation planking grooves!) cratch board to match the motor bow.
Moored and set up for the show last weekend
View early in the morning in the other direction
Apparently, there was a huge river festival happening at the same time in Bedford which we are sure impacted on footfall last weekend. We still had a lovely couple of days and caught up with traders we don't normally see.
Leaving Cosgrove on the Monday morning to head back for Stoke Bruerne for this weekend
The ornate bridge in the background as we leave the village
Sleepy cows in the gorgeous weather
peace and tranquility
The bows in their matching livery looking smart
We enjoyed a good day trading here yesterday with 'All Things Spanish' selling their Spanish inspired coffee and other items and not to forget their obligatory Walls icecream...
