Flying Boat ~ Milford Haven

The painting above of a Sunderland Short in Milford Haven sold last week. We spent many happy hours sailing the waters of the Haven before we had to give up our boat. Sack Rock Fort shown in the background was an old Napoleonic Fort built as part of the fortifications for the Haven which was an important waterway. My father was a radio operator in the RAF and had also been a gunner on a Catalina Flying Boat in the Indian Ocean.
Yesterday we had the grandchildren and I failed to do much in the way of work. Today we have a birthday in the family so a day of rest.
