Welcome to my new Blog
Welcome to my Blog.
My Blog is mostly about my hobbies, ie Model boats,Cross Stitch, Gardening, Days out and about and Photography with pictures taken at and around our Model Boat club at Etherow Country Park, where I can be found quite a few days a week on the landing stage, you might recognize the hat and the dog rather than me. My models and other hobbies can be found in the tabs at the top above the header picture.
There will also be entries of days out with my long haired Chihuahua "Pepe", weather permitting of course.

To show we do other stuff besides model Boats :
Yesterday we went to Chadderton Hall Park and had a nice lunch ( a hot pot and red cabbage to die for) and then dropped back to Ashton and gave Pepe his first look round there ( That's him in the picture my mate Bob took of him) and visited Roundabout toys and got my U/J (I'd thought I had one at home when we visited Birchwood show, it was the wrong size) and some brass rod to go inside some plastic strut to go on top of the Narrow Boat for the hand rails , the wood bead in the kit was too bent and flimsy looking. Its a good idea for rails picked up from Model Slipway kit "Aziz" nice looking rails and completely covered in plastic rod, you will see the effect when I get to that part of the build.
