The Bath-bound platform at Bradford train station looked pretty busy too. I suppose they were all heading for Bath Christmas Market. What madness, when there was a dreaming, sundering, sonambulant Floating Market on in their very own town!
I was quite early despite the detour and at first there weren't many people here.
But as the start time of 11am approached, the tow path started to fill up with punters.
My friend Jan and I waited at Chris and Jinny's table for the off, determined to snaffle the pick of Skyravenwolf's wares
It wasn't long before Dru was pretty busy too. I bought my Christmas cards, and then Jan and I repaired to the Lock Inn for coffee.
Then a quick wander to the Tithe Barn and more stalls in the West Barn where Jan herself had an exhibition a few years back.
It was good to meet up with Sue Meddings and become real life friends instead of just FB friends.
Then a finger or two of Dru's dark and dangerous Kraken rum and it was time to head back home, with considerably less money in my bag than I'd set out with. But hey - Christmas shopping done.
