Narrowboat Experience Visit the RCTA Floating Market at Cassiobury Park

August 29, 2019

hey honey I just realized something if you come back next week the cake boat
will be here again that’s delicious isn’t it Kath does
everything day today yes you have to Kath falls down the hill you made the breakfast and you made life
no we haven’t had lunch yet and you know I carried the money to the big store you
handed me my cake carried the cake it was delicious and that’s why I’m going
we’re not going back past the markets because um well yeah and I’d buy more
cake and then when we back to the boat its Kath does everything day yes
honey because I’ve got all those paintings to do K: I’ve got all that sitting to do. A: do you’re sitting later this
morning though we didn’t get any footage of it Munchy went missing for three
hours because it started to bucket down rain and then when she was like oh I
can’t possibly be caught in the rain and also can’t walk through puddles so I
have his feet are waterproof so I had to go look for him eventually an hour later
I found him what’s an hour it was an hour Kath was still in bed and then I
had to pick him up and carry him because he was like, ‘meow, meow’ . I was working I was really
worried we gonna go home and eat our cake I’m making Kath climb up this
hill can you see how crushed she is it’s very slippery it is really slippery,
we’re not on the path but it is lovely yeah pretty huh love it somebody’s already slid there. happy
about the day yeah not all of us it’s not happy about Kath does everything we
all negotiate on that one no just walk there was a thing I need to be recording
in case you fall isn’t it gorgeous here I love it what a gorgeous day I know
that it’s raining and it’s muddy and we have our wellies on but how great is
this I should be in the middle of a math lesson well no because this is Bank
Holiday Monday that was it
so woodpecker maybe remember one time we Did you hear that. That was a cuckoo
and I thought cuckoos were just made up for like the sound of music
they’re like actual cuckoos like a bird called a cuckoo did you know there’s a
bird called a cuckoo why you laughing did you know yes you didn’t know there’s
a Kingfisher though yes of it I’ll film this one this one’s not even been seen
yet ok pressure I’ll show you this much ok just to be at
a sneak peak for Scott I just make the teas. finally Hi Munchy are you in the basement flat Should I get alice for the top flat see if it
holds up structurally and so today three of our different experience draws to a
close it’s been a nice day yeah nice day yeah we haven’t moved the
boat so we’re still in our lovely mooring spot and we even though it’s
been raining and very grey we’ve picked up a tiniest bit of solar power at
charge somebody checks the solar powers like the first thing that happens when
we more up is she checks all of the things it’s not true because anybody
knows that there’s no point in checking the battery charge when it’s charging
because it shows an elevated number of volts Wow thank you for making us all
smarter so we had a nice time at the floating market even though it wasn’t
officially on because of the rain stopped play because anybody that’s been
following us will know bad weather is really disrupting our crafts enjoyment
listen big shout out to everybody who’s been clicking over to the art by Anna
Marie Channel know the art by anna marie website because the channel hasn’t had
anything uploaded in ages she’ll be working on in the next couple
of weeks yeah but thank you so much to everybody who has purchased prints
because that means that somebody has to go to the post office tomorrow so coming
up in tomorrow’s daily cycling to the post office also thanks we picked up a
couple of extra patrons yeah thanks for that yeah I really appreciate it
unexpected and lovely like like yourself like yourself thank you
further big thank you to all the extra people that have subscribed to us over
the last couple of days because we have seen a spike and as a result we will be
doing a special five thousand subscriber giveaway. Giving what away? I don’t know
what we’re gonna give away it’s gonna be a painter cuz we obviously haven’t
discussed it but coming soon to a wonderful narrowboat channel near you
that’s this one just to be clear and they’ll get to pull the names out of the
hats and we haven’t done that in such a long time
five thousand please and then we do a giveaway yes I like that idea
um we might even be filming it tomorrow we might have a giveaway tomorrow yeah
but anyway thanks for watching and we’ll see you again maybe tomorrow

    I wouldn't have thought you have to join to trade , I allways thought you had a common law freedom to barter trade and exchanges of goods , so to join would be voluntary

    The Cake-Boat's mooring lines were "mysteriously" entangled with yours and was last seen being towed towed down the Grand Union canal seemingly against their will? #piracy
