Great River Race…. it must be nearly autumn

The Great River Race finishes close to where I live.  It is a great event in which to take part, and to watch.  So much textile inspiration from the colours and lines of these boats, all paddled or rowed 21 miles upstream on an incoming tide.  An added bonus was the appearance of Gloriana, built in Richmond.


A walk along the river to finish a beautiful, late summer afternoon, seeing some brave souls continuing to row home upriver.
