Seaside and Sailing Boats
Well, the schools have finally broken up and the summer holidays are upon us. I always have a yearning to get away to the coast this time of year, I particularly love the North Devon and Cornwall coast line. I have reminders of the sea all over my house even though we are about as far from the coast as you can get ! I particularly love my old green pond yacht and my original 1930s Frank Sherwin water colour. Amazingly I picked this up in a charity shop some years ago , I loved it instantly but didn't know the artist. I later found out that he was one of the artists who designed the famous railway posters. My toilet is decorated in Cath Kidston's boat wallpaper which always cheers me up whatever the weather is like outside. Oh well hopefully I will get to the coast for real over the next few weeks. .
