First Peter Phillips sent us this picture, which shows Thistle with some visitors stranded on board. Apparently the children enjoyed it, but the adults were not too keen.
Then The Barge Tearooms posted some pictures showing that it can be difficult sometimes to get a cup of tea on a barge!
The Match was well advertised on the Quay and Promenade at Maldon, but it was disappointing that so few people were at either place for when the barges returned. Probably the time, the last one arrived at about 5.30pm, and the very cold wind by then put them off. Certainly, apart from The Barge Blog, there were only two people at the far end of the Promenade by the statue who knew what was happening.

Peter Phillips writes: “Forget the first snowdrop/crocus/daffodil etc. Never mind the lighter mornings and the birds starting to sing at silly o’clock. The first signs of spring are now to be seen at Maldon Quayside with barge sails spread out for dressing and passing pedestrians and their dogs walking all over them!”
