BCN Challenge 2017: the morning after…

Posted by indigodream on 29 May, 2017

So Titford bloomed with colourful narrowboats as briefly as the desert after rain…

We’re among the last to lock down Oldbury – the pound above was shallow when we turned, I guess it’s down to mud now!

The 49 boats that can together in a spirit of harmony and co-operation will soon be swallowed by the vastness of the BCN and it’s many connecting waterways…

I’m sure we’ll meet again on the cut 🙂

All credit to the BCN Society, who work so hard to keep the canals of Birmingham alive.

The Challenge is a truly unique and wonderful event – we’ll be back!

We’re up and at ’em!

Well, some of us are!

I don’t feel the least bit guilty for getting the human crew out of bed, but the hounds pleaded for a lie-in – very wise!

Alex puppy says “night night everyone”

An early finish (10pm!) means a cruel early start tomorrow at 4am – see you all then 🙂
