With the Eurozone in possible financial meltdown and with all the hassle at the Airports, body scanners, queues and the lottery of cabin crew strikes, looks like it's Skegness this summer. At least there should be a plentiful supply of Mushy Peas unless Crash Gordon sticks a windfall tax on them.
Hartlepool has been chosen as the destination for the second and final leg of the 2010 Tall Ships Race.
Having sailed across the North Sea from Kristiansand in Norway, the ships will be berthed in Hartlepool Quays between Saturday 7th and Tuesday 10th August 2010.
The North East of England has countless attractions for the visitor. This is a big occasion and it makes sense to stick around and sample not only the magnificent spectacle of the Tall Ships, but other local attractions. Several venues are planning additional Evening Entertainment so stay on and enjoy the infamous North-east hospitality. - You can take my place i'll be heading North out of the way
Already have a week booked in Sept in a cottage with a few members of the family in Southerness on the Solway Firth. My Summer will be liberally sprinkled with visits to the Isle of Arran for short breaks and healthy walking, I would also like to visit one of the more remote Scottish Islands this summer just not made up my mind where. Last June I spent a few days on the Isle of Muck one of the small isles of the West coast of Scotland, the weather was amazing I got well and truly toasted.
