This blog is mainly around sharing memories and other random musings which I hope will amuse and entertain.
hello Celia:And, what a splendid vessel the Waverley steamer looks to be!When we lived in London our apartment was in a building on the banks of the Thames and, like you, one knew that summer had come by the pleasure boats which made their seasonal appearance.We were particularly pleased when the 'Dixie Queen' paddle steamer and her jolly cruisers came out to play!!
On my to do list is to take a trip round the islands on this. As I'm informed that a very merry time can be had.There was a worry last year about funding to see it through the winter 'dry dock' however all has turned out well.
Would I have seen this when I visited Glasgow years ago ? I'm sure my Scottish friend...who taught me words such as drookit and oxter taked about the Waverley Steamer. It looks so beautiful, timeless....
Yes - its been going for years and I'm sure there are lots of tales it could tell.Celia
This is big! You have a lovely view of the river, Celia - I've really enjoyed your photos of what floats, sails or steams passed. Axxx
I consider myself very lucky.
And here we are in the depths of our winter - but it is very fine at the moment.Thanks for stopping by Carole's Chatter - glad you liked "Blessings and Lessons". Have a great day.
It's always lovely to hear from you.
