    If anyone likes canal boats the annual "Canalway Cavalcade" event is on at and around Little Venice (near Paddington Station. London) this weekend and on Bank Holiday Monday. Basically, it's a fund-raising event for the canal charities and features canal boats, food and drink stalls, often junk and book stalls etc. I don't think they held it the last two years due to covid, it'll be nice to see it resume.

    Some pictures I took there in 2018 while testing an 80-200 lens:

    If you're coming to Paddington by train the easy way is to follow the signs to the Hammersmith and City line platforms, there's an exit onto the canal-side opposite the gates to these platforms.

    As it turned out, I ended up in the area without my camera on Saturday and had a quick wander around - it was very much the mixture as before, with nothing really surprising. I meant to go back on Monday, but the weather was lousy so I ended up giving it a miss. A bit anticlimactic, but there were enough people there to make me think that it will be continuing into the future, so hopefully I'll get things right next year.
