Grab yer mop!

Night time

Yep, it’s that time of year again when they close half of the town’s roads for the annual Mop Fair.
In 2014 and 2015, we walked up on the first night to look around and take in the atmosphere.  Maggie wasn’t too bothered by all the noise, but last year it was louder and busier than the first we attended.
Last night, the weather was a bit iffy as it was drizzly, you know the kind of rain that seeps into your clothes without you really noticing, so we didn’t go. We may go tonight though.

Surprisingly, we didn’t hear very much, apart from the occasional scream from punters on rides, but the lights.  Oh, the searchlights, coloured towers, spinning wheels, we could certainly see those lighting up the sky from the pontoon!


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
