One year ago today the ' Tall Ships ' were at the Marina near where I live so I thought I would show the photos of some of them seen as I have no new stitching to show as I have been away overnight this weekend and since I've come home I have been tidying cupboards and having a good clean. That evening last year was pretty chilly with the North Sea wind...so different to tonight as it is hot. There was lots of entertainment on and a fair with stalls selling things...the atmosphere was lovely with the music playing:-) This picture below is a closer view of the same ships before the sun started setting, I think there were 30 ships in total that night ready to set sail on the next leg of their race the following day.
Still last year this a little further down the coast on a different day walking at the edge of the sea in the direction of the Marina...I seem to have lost most of my family in this picture :-)
This last picture is of a much loved Yorkshire seaside town again not that far from where I live it is called ' Whitby ' and is one of my favourite places to be infact my husband and myself saw the Millenium in here...which has just reminded me I had made him wear his kilt on that New Years Eve (as he is Scottish and it was the Millenium)...it took him about 2 days to thaw out after that shall we say...lol!!
I love the fishing boats on the picture and the seagull on the boats little mast...he was actually hoping for some of our fish and chips I think. Sorry the pics are a bit hazy but it is often like that on hot days here :-)
