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 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.

Aziz at Etherow.

Pepe and I had a day at the lake to-day, I took my "AZIZ" and my Ritalea, thinking I might meet Bob and he could have a sail.
Met Colin and Andy Quick there, I've been in contact with Andy for a number of weeks and to-day was the first time we have met in person!. We all got on like a house on fire and Andy said "Have you got your camera", I usually have and as I've tried to tell my lovely grand-daughter you can miss a lot of shots with a big SLR but these days the compact camera is so good and always handy.

Although I've had the "Aziz" for a while now I've not had the chance to take a video of it, you need someone to run the boat whilst you video and Andy as always admired the "Aziz" so he was quite willing to oblige.

Then it was the turn of the Ritalea, this is one of Bob Abell's builds and as you can see its very manoeuvreABELL on the water with its Becker rudder.
Then the Commodore Chris came along with his lady Gillian, she had a Tug and he had his Submarine, didn't get to video either of those, not that the submarine would have shown up in our waters!.
Well thats all for now hope you enjoy the video's, off to post a blog on the club site now of Colin's "J" class and Andy's two boats.

That's all folk's
