At the Beach

Summer days are here and with it the call of the sea!

We live on the mouth of the Thames Estuary in a town called Westcliff on Sea and we live just up from the beach where I head off most days with my pal Riley for walkies!

I am signed up for several events this September this year including the annual Leigh Regatta and have decided that it is about time I made some signs with a nautical flavour - so that is what I am doing and this is a sampler of some of the designs.
My hubby Dave sails a Tornado - which is a racing catamaran and his family are into boats in a big way. They own an old sailing yacht built in 1896 in Blackwall on the Thames. She is called Hypatia and is kept in Holland year round in a lovely ancient shipping town called Veere. We go there most summers to spend some time on the boat and in Holland which we love.
Dave approves of the nautical signs which is a break from flowery ones which I normally do!
