Boats in the Bay...

Yesterday was the St Ives Jumbo Association's 'Boats in the Bay' event....
It was the first time we had seen these fantastic traditional vessels in St Ives, thankfully the weather was kind & we spent a while chatting to a really interesting guy Steve Martin on the Jumbo Association stall about the ' Joannies' he had made.  These carved wooden figures were made by sailors in the past, who were often away from home for weeks at a time to give to their children.  Steve had made some brilliant modern interruptions of these Joannies...there are some old ones in the St Ives Museum which will must made a visit to soon! 











The yellow line....
A fund raising idea from the Rotary Club - fits very nicely with my yellow theme!
