Fathers Day

As it was Fathers Day and we had been allowed to look after two of our grandchildren for the weekend whist their parents went to a beer festival we took them to Purton on the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal for a picnic down by ‘The Hulks‘ which are on the river bank next to the canal.

Photo-0200We were joined by our son & daughter-in-law who had just about recovered from the beer festival and they came bearing gifts and also seemed to have laid on a visit from two of the Tall Ships returning from the festival at Gloucester a couple of weeks ago. That’s a sight you wouldn’t see on many other canals in the country!Me & The Kids
