Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England



Salcombe Yawls, racing hard in the Salcombe regatta .


It looks mayhem to me; Mr Uhdd notes that in the next shot, the mizzen mast (the short mast at the back of the boat for the non-nautically minded) of one of the boats seem to be mizzen, and another is at a rather jaunty angle!


(I think you need to know what you are looking at to spot that,  so for land lubbers like me, it’s the little sail at the back on the red and the blue boats.)

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. I hate to say it, but I was really focused on the lucky homeowners on that beautiful green hill in the background 🙂

  2. Oops!

    I never knew sailing was a contact sport.

  3. Wow – what a bunch of sails – hope they all kept themselves sorted out. Lovely photos.

  4. How do they not bash each others boats. Err boat isnt the correct word is it.
    Im not really a sailing person. Prefer crabbing off the harbor wall.
    Good pictures Uphill
