May Ball taxi service

Left work early. After buying bacon, croissants etc (at Tescos for a change) set off at 1900. Glorious evening and run (the photos do not quite capture the light). Navigation lights on at Upware. Arrived Bottisham lock 2140 in the dusk, Baitsbite in the dark 2245, tieing up at Jesus lock at 2350, a bit later than planned. Good view of the fireworks at the St John’s May Ball. In the morning Jeremy plus eight friends arrived in dribs and drabs. Set off 0715. Dropped some people off at Waterbeach (I had to go to work) and then SG continued back to Ely. We had our Cam Conservators licence checked at Waterbeach, which was good.
