Boats, guns and funny hats

   "Stand tall, don't think small, don't put your back against the wall..."
                                                                             -Tommy Shaw


    
    This weekend,  the Port Dover Harbour Museum hosts the annual Marine Heritage Festival.   War of 1812 re-enactors, a tall ship, gunboats, a wooden boat show, music, topped by the Battle of the Beach on Saturday night.  What's not to like?


Pictures from last year's event:














     Chirp and Legacy  will be at the wooden boat show at Bridge Yachts.  of course, if Chirp is to be the belle of the ball, she needs a new frock.  With a reasonably favourable weather forecast for the week, the back yard of stately Jones manor was transformed into a boatyard



  She even got a jaunty new cove stripe.


    A quick and dirty varnish job, and she's ready to go.
