    I think that covers everything, though no doubt some smart-arse will prove me wrong...

    You said rafts!

    Here is nemesis rising above the "Crocky Trail" entrant to the 2018 Chester Raft Race. It links through to Flickr where there are lots more.

    Some time ago, in the interests of HSE, they banned rafts from carrying water jets because the big rafts, if fitted with a petrol powered water pump, could do some damage to the competitors and the crowd. Instead they hired the guy with the jet suit to give a performance. This is powered from a jet-ski that he tows behind.

    Crocky trail is a local adventure playground for children. I remember the fuss when the farmer started it. Our kids were small so - I guess - 30 years ago. People then were aghast at the idea that kids might fall in the water, get covered in mud while doing obstacle courses. Good to see that it is still going, and very popular.

    Hebridean Princess with Queen in port Stornoway. As I walked out I bumped into a minor Royal and his two children. The children jumped a mile, but he smiled and we exchanged good mornings.
