Maritime Festival - Weekend 5th - 6th Sept 2015

The Maritime Festival is spread over two days and as often can be the case in Britain the weather can fluctuate wildly in a few hours.

Saturday was cold. A stiff wind was in evidence all day. Walking around the festival site was not for the faint hearted. It was little better in the Events' marquees. By 4 o'clock, two hours before the closing time of the festival on Saturday, the public had left. Still as always there is a bright side. The food vendors were giving away unsold wares which was very welcome by those who had been there since seven in the morning.

Irene and Dennis Ann, Irene and friends

What a difference a day makes. Sunday was swimming suit weather ...... well not quite but compared with Saturday it was positively Balmy. This is the weather we normally associate with the Festival and we were all glad of it.
