This annual event gets better every year. This time we were able to have a go at all kinds of craft activities, as well as stroll past dozens of beautifully decorated canal boats, and look at all the stalls. Kids could buy a passport for £1, and could then do 10 activities free all day. We had to pay a bit for what we did, but it was great.

The only blemish on the day was I bought Mum and dad a bag of toffee each, and when we called in at their house to give it to them, I found I'd left it on the stall - once I'd paid for it! So they had to make do with a pot of lemon curd.

What a lovely day out
Great photos and looks like fun was had by all - certainly kept you and Alex busy making hooks and stools :-) Must put it in the diary for next year.

Brings back wonderful memories of our day at the canal and our visit with you. Short, but very sweet. Love to you all
