Another first for Kevayling, and what an enjoyable one too. We offered to pick up Richard & Nick from Maidstone Fairmeadow and transport them by river to Allington Castle for their formal partnership ceremony and celebrations, along with one of their photographers.
Unfortunately the weather was not good as we waited for them in Maidstone, the heavens opened up and it poured with rain but as they were running a few minutes late by the time they arrived to board the rain had eased off somewhat. For the first part of their journey it was a matter of remaining under cover in the saloon and wheelhouse armed with a glass of our finest home-made wine.
As we approached Allington the sun came out and the covers went up allowing Richard & Nick to received the good wishes of river users as we passed. Kevayling turned at the Malta Inn and our passengers then safely delivered to the castle moorings for the start of their big day.
Lots of photos taken of Kevayling and our arrival at Allington Castle which we hope to get in the near future.
