Regatta Day

Today was our annual Regatta Day in Portscatho.......A sandcastle competition was followed by races on the beach for the kids; then a raft race and swimming races and kayak races. Unfortunately there wasn't enough wind for the working boats to compete, but they were towed round to the bay anyway so that we could enjoy their spectacle and the crews could come ashore for a pasty and a pint!

Sitting on the slip enjoying the events, and having fun on the sand....

The bunting was up in the streets,

and I took full advantage of the fine weather to spill out onto the pavement....

Such a lovely day meeting all sorts of lovely people; friends old and new, locals and visitors. Just a great way to round off the summer!
Have a happy Bank Holiday weekend xxx


  1. It looks idyllic - so beautiful!

  2. It does look wonderful. The bunting in the streets is something I have only seen on UK blogs and instagram. It is so charming. I wish they did that here.

  3. Christine, it looks lovely and old-fashioned and reminds me of my childhood in Grandpas boat, The Shielah. Angelicaxxx
