PORTSOY BOAT FESTIVAL NEWS REPORT 22nd JUNE 2008.
PORTSOY BOAT FESTIVAL NEWS REPORT 22nd June 2008.
Portsoy, remember that tiny little village on the North East coast of Scotland from our report about the village whistlers ? full report here...
The graphic shows part of the old harbour which seems to have stood still in time and in the background the very old building which houses the world famous Portsoy Marble where one can still buy quality made items with highly polished marble being one.
The graphic was taken on Saturday 21st of June 2008 and as the graphic shows once again the show has been a success.
Today Sunday the rain has never let up, but the second day is usually quieter anyway, so it looks like the town will again be on a vow of silence for next year.
When I visited the show a couple of years ago I was amazed to look at clothing was on display made solely from dogs hair, and noticeably missing this year was one of the original showpieces and stallwarts of the boat festival that being the New Pitsligo lacemakers which has been handed down to ladies who's husbands were making a living offshore in their small fishing boats.
Hopefully next year will be even better with the return of the lacemakers and a completely dry weekend.
Is it news to you ? then you read it here first!
