Medway River Festival

Hi folks,

Well stayed in my local area yesterday and visited the local River Festival.

The only thing that marred the event is that most of the boats where in London for the Queens Pageant tomorrow (today now). The rain held off although it was overcast for most of the day.

This chap greeted us, welcome aboard he said......

and the lady ready for the weather to change!

Canoeists giving a demonstration below us, a couple went in the river.

Morning Star, one on the vessels not in London.

Our old favourite, the Kingswear Castle, chugging towards Rochester.

One of the many attractions.

Off he went with her on his bike which got around the corner and the chain came off.

Action on the river as the race got under way.

Racing Yacht with outriggers.

Lots of rides and things to do for the children, this lot seemed to be enjoying playing with the gun.

Yacht race fully under way.

All in all a good day out and the bonus is that it was free.

Thanks for dropping by, looking forward to next year.

nite nite, luv Mike XX
