South Wales Boat Show. This is the second year I have dealt with Ben and co, and it can be frustrating getting all of the people happy all of the time. This year, for the first time, we had the pleasure (!) of setting up in SA1, Swansea's equivalent of London's Mayfair. The whole area is yuppie apartments, wine bars and Thai Restaurants. Unfortunately, the whole area is also a building site. This means that we have been coming home completely caked in dust. Wednesday night saw us return home at 9:30 with slight sunburn. The area's right on the edge of the sea and so you have a cooling breeze all the time. This means you don't realise you are getting burnt. Mind you, the redness has already turned into a rather pleasant tan, such a rare thing for me.
The biggest problem with the new site is there's a road running right through the middle of it. This means I have to make a 'bridge' for the speaker cable (see 5 amp mains cable) to get it safely over the road and high enough that lorries etc can pass under it. We spent 4 hours yesterday, trying to do this, but we succeeded.
I have to dash, the opening's at 11:30, and I need to be there to do a sound check etc. Have a good weekend y'all.
