Spent this morning at the Newton Abbot Boat Jumble in South Devon this morning. There are always two held at the famous race course...one around May and the other in September. I go to one of them every year, not so much to buy anything (although today I did buy bits and pieces for fitting out Angharad), but because I'm curious and like to nose about brick a brac.
Anyway, having armed myself with some 5mm navy blue rope for decklines; two brass cleats for for'ard deck and a seat cushion, I decided to take some photographs......discreetly.......one or two sellers don't like being photographed....for ....eh.....shall we say one or two dodgy stall items perhaps?
The vast majority of stall sellers and car booters are wonderful sea faring folk with a ready smile and story to tell. I like Newton Abbot boat jumble...and today I liked it even more.....the sun shone and it didn't rain like last year!
