First weekend in April 2013.

Went to Etherow on Saturday but only one sailor there, as is the norm on Saturday's, so had a walk round the lakes and saw the coots nesting near to the middle path,between the lakes

Proud Mum

Found a big white egg on the Landing stage garden.

Previous eggs have been speckled as shown on these past pictures,
So this is perhaps a swan egg or a very sore goose egg



The Cafe was busy as usual with people enjoying the sunshine for a change

To-day (Sunday) there was a lot more activity on the landing stage, with the Fiesta racing in full swing when I got there. 
Dave the Fiesta Sec, and Andy the General Secretary, seem to be lagging behind here

And here are the leaders, rounding the top bouy!

Then it was Alan Higham's turn on the water with his latest creation, HMS Meteor.





As you can see it's to his usual high stand, sitting well on the water with a good turn of speed and good turning circle.


As you may have noticed we are now in Spring time mode on the top heading picture!
                                                                                     
That's all folks.

Well go on then, here's another couple of my Etherow pictures
