Comings And Goings

There were lots of comings and goings at Devizes today. Lots of boat movements and an amazing number of walkers and cyclists on the towpath. The towpath is very dusty so Epiphany is very dusty too! She was inside too, until this morning, when I had a blitz clean!

nb Twelfth of Never was moored behind us.

Strangely one of JD Boats share boats had the same name. We checked with these boat-owners, knowing the JD boat may have been sold by now. But apparently there are 2 T of Ns! We didn't think it had as nice lines as Jim and David Matthias and their staff build on the Staffs and Worcs canal at Gailey.

We have had a couple of lovely evenings moored here on Devizes Wharf. The next boat along had a BBQ this evening on the towpath and we all shared the smell! Here are a few photos of the scene: last night and early evening today.

The Wharf Theatre (back of!) at night.

The same view early this evening.

Looking towards the Kennet and Avon Trust shop with the trip boat moored up.

nb Great Britain and nb Isambard (in the distance) moored opposite us tonight.

A friend sent us an email with a photo attached. It shows some guys in Ireland who had the job of installing some bollards to prevent cars being parked on the pavement. It may have already done the rounds but if you want to have a look, click here.

We are moving off tomorrow to pick up John and Carolyn for a days cruise. It looks as if it will be even hotter than today.
