Today is a bank holiday weekend, which means that most people have Monday off work as well as Saturday and Sunday. Here in Skipton, it is the Waterways Festival, where narrowboats take over the canals, and there’s a festival in the farmers’ market square. It was a gorgeous day, so Skipton was heaving (it’s normally very busy at the weekend anyway, because it’s a market town and draws a lot of tourists). I had to maneouvre and dodge all the tourists and cars in town as I had to go to the shops, so I stopped and took this photo of the festivities.
Later on, we went to watch two-thirds of the band, The Muskrats, play at a pub in Halifax. It was a very good gig, although some of the crowd were a little rowdy at the beginning. We had the best spot, though, so it wasn’t too much of a hindrance, as we did get to hear the entire set. (Although it’s blurred, you may recognise the drummer/cajon-player. 😀 )
