Bank Holiday 2 - Little Venice Canalway Cavalcade

On the way back from Norwich, I called James to let him know I was on my way, only to find that he was in London with Mike A at the Canalway Cavalcade. He suggested that I join him, as he was going to be going on a little jaunt with Mike on Victoria and James B on Archimedes. I couldn't resist that offer and so despite being tired from hen party I made my way to Little Venice to join them, having to sprint to catch the boats before they set off into Maida Hill tunnel!

We moored to boats up above Camden locks and stopped for dinner and a drink. James B took Archimedes all the way into Dead Dog Basin (under the warehouse), which I didn't know was possible!

The boys raced back to Little Venice after we'd eaten at top speed and made it in time to circle the island a couple of times before mooring up when the illuminated boat parade started. We got back to Cambridge at 1am.

On Monday, we had a big old sort out and took a lot of bits and pieces down to our garage. The well-deck is looking very clear!

  1. Hi

    Hope you had a grand time at the Cavalcade? We weren't able to take our old boat 'Eileen' this time, having just settled her into the new mooring outside Cropredy, however with the Cavalcade only minutes from home we had a great time exploring on the Sunday... you can catch our pictures and also our latest mini-trip on 'Eileen' at our blog

    cheers, and good boat hunting!
