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.

Last couple of days.

The last couple of days has seen Pepe and I moving around a bit.
On Wednesday we went to Appleton Thorn, (Warrington) one of the "Eddie Stobart" depots to do a bit of spotting.
We has a good couple of hours there and a nice lunch, 
How's that for a nice sandwich and with a cup of coffee, the total cost £1.60, can't be bad hey
And here is the picnic area, if it's fine enough to sit out!
Got a good number of "Spot's" and met a couple from Rugby there on their way to Scotland for their holidays, stopped off to get some "Spots" on the way, and then calling at the main depot at Carlisle as well.
If you don't know all the Stobart trucks have girls names, except "Valentino" after the motorcycle rider Valentino Rossi.

Just a few Spot's from the day, and as you can see the weather nice for a change.

Yesterday I fillered and rubbed down the deck of the model OL2 
And as you can see the inspectors are all over it checking for imperfections, but anything they find will be sorted out using filler/primer when the filler and sanding is finished.

I then took Pepe to the lake and we met Bob and his two ladies there, been keeping out of their way for a while with the cough and cold I've had.
What did you say "Sheegar" found safe and well at Etherow, look at those teeth, shame Pepe didn't show his!.
Then Bob did a bit of photo magic and added his picture and one of mine together to produce this,
Nice one Bob!.
