We wandered up through the town on our way to the sea and these banners were draped across all the shop walls and were blowing in the breeze
This plaque is on the sea wall as we are now down on the seafront
The red jet going to drop off and pick up passengers to take back to Southampton
Blue funnel ferry to and from Southampton at a steady sedate pace
These little cannons start the races
The red funnel car ferry leaving from East Cowes and going to Southampton
The race is on
Look at the fourth boat
I wasn't the only one snapping these boats - and I was snapping him too!!
A little ornate non working drinking fountain
Gateway to the Royal Yacht Squadron - I asked the guy just to the left of the photograph if I could take a photo of the building and he said "you shouldn't really, but go on"
Isn't it beautiful??
Eight foot high fence all the way round it
This post box is outside of the RYS and was taped up for security reasons!!!
OOOOOooohhh look I snapped me and all the boats behind me whilst snapping this sign
We wandered back into town to catch the bus home and I spotted this sign on the wall
Isle of Wight Steam Railway
The site of Cowes Railway Station - 1867-1966
Recording the Island's Railway History
Isle of Wight Steam Railway sign on the side of this building!!!!
Cowes is one of the seven wonders of the Isle of Wight
Cowes you cannot milk!
Out of the bus window going home - beautiful.

At our weekly Parkrun on a Saturday morning we have our barcodes and finish position tokens scanned by little machines that are temperamental and don't work when the weather is cold. Once they are scanned our results are downloaded and published for us. I have started making "scanner pockets" to hand out to visitors to our parkrun to take back to their home parkruns to keep their scanners warm and working - here are a few that I have made this week.
I've done a few rows of this WIP cosy blanket
This has to be made up into bunting - I'll go get on that then.
Thanks for popping by
