2 quick catch-up pics of the Cambria taken this week, one of another coat of 'Rosy Glow' undercoat going onto the foredeck and starboard deck, the other of some of the bunks being put together by shipwright Ryan down below.

Last night, though, Mum and Dad, having done their wanna-bee Londoner bit with the Pie and Mash, get a bit glammed up and go to the opening night of an arty exhibition in support of keeping the old traditional shipwrighting skills in the town (and at the Quayside). All the 'great and good' of the quayside and bargin' are there. There is food and there are drinks free of charge, and there's a superb, hour long documentary film capturing the Quayside and the work that goes on, plus some very telling interviews with the local shipwrights and workers, the main protagonists in the Planning battle (especially one 'elected representative') - you can see bits of it on

But now it's the weekend

Look after yourselves
