It was something of a sensational day yesterday down on the Nith with the Stovies. The sunshine we craved may not have appeared, but the crowds came anyways. 14 boats left Carsethorn, and all but two made it to the finishing post – and to the site of the salt cows final resting place. Meanwhile, parades gathered force through the streets of Dumfries lead by a feverish Samba band, and banners unfurled off the Devorgilla bridge and down over the caul. Banner themed images reflect the end of the project I’ve had the most involvement in.
It has been nothing short of epic. An amazing congratulations to all organisers and those involved!
