Punts

Autumn, and the punts are lined up on the River Cam. I wonder whether they put them away for the winter, and where?

How do you store punts? Are they OK kept out of the water for a long period?

    Great, evocative photo of the punts, David!: I love the line-up; their vibrant shades of reds, greens, orange hues and the like that you’ve captured; and the darker shades exhibited in the reflections of the houseboats on the other side of the shore. Lovely all ’round… ๐Ÿฆ†

  2. You must have Boat Houses somewhere near there, don’t you, David? Winter’s when they get all of their maintenance done (and a well-deserved rest ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Yes, there are several boat houses along the River Cam for the Cambridge University and Anglia Ruskin University rowing teams. I know where a couple of the punting companies have their boats but I have never looked for a boathouse. Fact is, it might have been staring me in the face.

        2. Yes, I assumed so… I guess my timing must’ve been spot-on to catch you? But the thing is, sometimes the WordPress app sends a “reply sent” message (and sometimes it doesn’t):

  3. To be specific, just look at all of their poor scuffed up, sun-faded top surfaces… Badly in need of a light sand and a touch up :/

    1. Not sure what happened just now, but my initial comment hasn’t appeared, so I’ll attempt to reproduce it: “You must have Boat Houses somewhere near there, David? Winter’s when they get all of their maintenance (and a well-deserved rest; )
      A lovely photo, but perhaps just slightly melancholy? The poor little things look deserted with no one about.

        1. BOTH of them? Oh darn! (Ah well the second had a little more thought behind it anyway; )

    2. I wonder – maybe that is what they do in the winter.
