Peering through

I wonder if the inhabitants of that house in the distance ever take advantage of the gap in the foliage to look on the canal?

Stratford River Festival 2014

The Stratford-upon-Avon River Festival is a lovely thing, especially if you like boats. Lots and lots of boats. This year did not disappoint for dozens of narrowboats and assorted river craft. I even spent some money at one of the stalls, obviously the horror of opening my wallet forced me to have a lie down for a while. You can see the photos i took here.
