Sunny days by the seaside

After the madness of the superheroes party (see below) we settled down to an extremely unadventurous (by our standards) weekend of leisure and relaxation. It was actually extremely nice simply to potter about by the English seaside.

Punch and Judy in action, in this scene the crocodile is attempting to steal the sausages from Mr. Punch. Almost as many adults watching as children!

Not, alas, me at the helm of my luxury yacht, but aboard sail training ship 'Kaskelot'.

The 'Kaskelot' and the 'Earl of Pembroke' visited Weymouth for the weekend...

...along with a flotilla of yachts on an ocean racing adventure. Lucky chaps.

We had several walks with Moss along the seafront, on the small bit of beach where dogs are allowed in the summer, and past the boats. Even indeed up onto the Nothe (on Sunday) where she searched in vain for squirrels.

Moss is not easily photo- graphed, as she is a wilful terrier that wanders out of shot.

Kate is equally wilful, but usually (not always) stands still when asked.

Weymouth looking very lovely in the summer sunshine on Sunday afternoon.

Many many thanks once again to Steph and Harry for an excellent weekend.
