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.

End of November, 2016.

Today at the lake, which was frozen over by the way, it was quite pleasant walking round with Pepe.


I saw the Egyptian Goose was back after an absence of a few weeks, but also back with him was the adult swan that had lost his mate in the summer!.


I got to thinking why does King Tut keep shooing off the new swan that was trying to get to know the big male.
Perhaps Bob and I had got it wrong all these years, what if it was a female., put this idea to Bob and he came up with a website that stated that Female Tuts have a very loud Honking voice and the males just Hiss.
Mystery sorted!, This Queen Tut can be heard by another friend of mine that lives in a house two blocks away from the lake in the mornings when he gets up.

Sounds about right hey, the females have the soundest voices!.
 

He seems keen as well.

There is some work being done in the park where the Badger sett is.
New path  laid with steel grating underneath to protect the canal wall.



Nice job Lad & Lassie.

On the build 
Lower bow deck about to be fitted

There you go, and the top bow deck also fitted and weighed down!.

On to the rubbing stripes next.



More next time!.
