Dragon Boat Race

Dragon Boat Race

York Rotary Dragon Boat Challenge

Wow – you have two blog posts today from me! Today felt like an Autumn day with dappled sun light and a cool chill to the air. The leaves on the trees that line the River Ouse, slowly starting to change colour.

Dragon Boat Racing is the world’s fastest growing water sport and has become popular with charities, the  York Rotary Dragon Boat Challenge provides the opportunity for anyone to take part in this thrilling sport here in York on one of its finest  assets, the River Ouse. 

The event, is normally held in July each year, but this year, because of Covid, is in September (12th). 

I stayed for a couple of hours but it started to get a bit chilly a lovely end to a lovely weekend.

A bit of Urban

I don’t usually visit big cities as it’s not my idea of fun, but it was nice to visit somewhere different for a change and have a ride on the River Taxi.

It was extremely busy and it’s a shame people aren’t considering others on public transport. I seemed to be the only one wearing a mask for the journey to Leeds.

The images of the pigeons are taken outside one of the many shopping arcades. I was just eating lunch when this lady came along with a bag of rice and started to throw it around. From nowhere birds flew from every direction and descended on this small patch of rice – cheers!

Let’s feed the birds!
No – I rather you didn’t!
