As part of the dragon-boat racing festival, there were several other attractions in Roberts Park, including a market and lots of food stalls. I don't usually need to eat and drink 'out' in Saltaire as it's so close to home but I was so cold that warming my hands on a hot coffee was very welcome.
I enjoyed watching a Tai Chi demonstration. It was Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan, to be precise, though I don't know enough about it to understand what that means. I once participated in a short Tai Chi workshop and really enjoyed it. It's a gentle and meditative series of controlled movements, good for promoting suppleness and balance, though it is also a form of martial art for self-defence. Most of the people taking part seemed to be quite mature. I have wondered whether to try it, it seems a good form of gentle exercise for oldies like me!
