DAD

THIS IS DAD AT MIDDLETON AFTER A SHRIMPING TRIP IN THE BAY.
IT WAS HIS FAVOURITE PICTURE.
HE IS WEARING WHAT HE CALLED A WHITBY SLICKER,
HE LOVED IT.
HE WAS AN ENGINEERING MANAGER, A HARD NUT, A SHIP AND BOAT BUILDER ; BOTH MODEL AND REAL.
HE TOOK ME BEACHCOMBING AND  FISHING.



ABOVE ... THAT'S ME  ON THE SAME SHRIMPING TRIP, STEERING THE BOAT IN HARTLEPOOL BAY. I HAD JUST LEFT SCHOOL AND WAS ABOUT TO START MY APPRENTICESHIP IN FACTORY JUST BEHIND ME, BUT......
THE SEA IS IN MY BLOOD.


BEACH BUOY.
