Yesterday, the Hubby and I went to the Linslade Canal Festival. It was a lot of fun seeing all the different organizations that had stalls set up to educate the public as well as sell everything from alpaca blankets (no I didn’t get any even though it was a really good price) to food to stuffed animals and pretty much everything in between. There were also artisans there selling their varied wares as well. There were folks who did the traditional painting that is found on the narrow boats (think Swedish flowers) as well as folks who made baskets and chairs and even a boat-bound blacksmith!
One of the funniest things that we saw was a bucking sheep, much like the bucking broncs that you see in western themed bars except that is was a wildly grinning ewe.
(Man, I totally dig this country!)
It was a fun few hours out and cheap as well as the only thing that we had to pay for was parking.
