Lawrenny

Here is another sketch this time it shows Sapphire our last yacht in Lawrenny Yard.
She was a very sea worthy vessel 32ft long and sailed beautifully. We brought her round from Swansea on our maiden voyage to Milford Haven. Despite fog which prevented us seeing anything from the Mumbles until we got inside the Haven we had a good passage.
We found our ground tackle had gone when we arrived in Angle so started to motor up to Lawrenny when I found 6 inches of water in the cabin. This was a little disconcerting.
Alex said as I was Captain it was my duty to go down with the boat. Thanks! Anyway we did trace the source of the water and all was well in the end.
Today I did a watercolour and Alex framed some prints.
