Saturday: Some more pics from Little Venice 🙂 The baby coots in the pool are perhaps the most popular attraction at this weekend’s Cavalcade!

Paddleboarders on the the Regent’s Canal by Maida Hill Tunnel

I would not assume the paddleboarders went through the tunnel – they could have perhaps done so by waiting for an eastbound boat and then trailing behind it (even tho the rules technically dont allow it!) I have seen instances of this occurring with canoeists however paddleboarders would be far too slow. These paddleboarders actually rested by the tunnel portal before returning to Paddington Basin.
