A special hello today to a talented shipwright!!
In 2014, on a sunny summer afternoon I walked home from work with Agathe in my pocket. Along the sea wall at Ross Bay I happened to glance toward the shore, and spotted this fabulous ship – I always wondered who made it, and where it had come from.
This afternoon I discovered its origin by sheer happenstance – I glanced to my left during my walk home and saw a similar shaped vessel with purple sails, sitting on a work bench all ready to be launched! Upon enquiry at the house, I found out that the maker is a very talented shipwright who occasionally launches his vessels at Willows Beach. My Hittys love the ship and have had several adventures with it …click here for Quimper Hitty blog episodes about the ship!
Chance is a wonderful thing!
