After the pandemonium of the raft race died down we meandered around the river looking at all the spruced up boats, whilst the barge owners played silly songs & talked to passers by. It all got a bit Rosie & Jim tbh.
This barge rightfully won best dressed.
Beach huts, balloons, flags, donkey rides & they were all hand drawn & painted. Impressive stuff.
Or...you know, have a mid-life crisis, ditch the sensible barge & paddle board down the River. Why not!?
