It atarted with the Boaters Sunday Service. Not many turned up for the Church Army led worship and celebration service. However, we had a good time together with many 'modern' songs rather than traditional hymns. If was refreshing.
The crowds began to gather around midday and we had a stream of people to chat to and who came to enquire about boating and boat life and Christianity. I am always amazed by the number of people who don't think we have toilets and a bathroom!
This afternoon I had a very pleasant conversation with Eric C Bartholomew who is here to promate his latest book, a novel, titled Distant Horizons. This is a story based on the true events in the life of a family on the Indian subcontinent. It proves to be a page turner as the Best Mate cannot put it down.
The author is a very interesting man who left a trade to travel and write.Firstly in a caravan and lately he has a narrowboat He puts a wealth of experience as a genuine adventurer into the writing.
I look forward to another chat with him tomorrow in between his book signing.
