Thanks to the pandemic, it's been nearly two years since I was last in one of my favourite places locally, which is Bradford-on-Avon, and I've missed it, so it was good to visit today to do some Christmas shopping at the Floating Market - or Floating Fayre, as I think it's called these days.

A flying visit to the 2021 Kennet & Avon Winter Floating Fayre
The Tithe barn
We took our collie, Cwtch, with us, who's been to few places apart from the field and the wood and the common and whose whinnies of despair from the back seat of the car started in earnest as we turned the wrong way at the junction - ie not up the road that leads to same.
Up on the tow path of the Kennet and Avon canal it was quite busy, with a lot going on that was new to Cwtch, so we decided not to stay beyond the point where it might get too much for her.
There was time, though, to buy three calendars and some cards from Dru Marland, and an etching from her daughter, Katie. I hadn't seen Dru since the pandemic was just starting so it was good to have a (heads turned) hug.
