SSBR at TSBT’s Open Day where we became a Scooter Park!

Time to pack up at the end of a cold and tiring day.   It was TSBT’s Open Day at Maldon Hythe Quay yesterday.

Large number of visitors enjoyed tea and home-made cakes on board sb Centaur and were no doubt pleased to sit down out of the wind for a while with a warming cuppa.  Wonderful TSBT volunteers were showing adults, children and dogs round the barge.  Funny to see little dogs with short legs not liking the steep slope up to the deck at high tide.   Several stopped half way and didn’t want to move.

TSBT generously invited SSBR to have a table in their tent on the Quay.   Don Wright and I talked to lots of visitors and acted as a Scooter Park for all the children, but sadly did not sell a single book!   Still at least we were there showing the SSBR banner.

Sb Thistle went out for an afternoon sail to Osea.   Here she is nearly home.
