Well, I checked and the change won't work. I booked White Mare Pool back in January when the sales were on, and now Silverlink is pretty full and very dear. So with directions we can find your local, or if we finish at Beamish by mid afternoon, perhaps find your shop. Then do your local - does it have pub food?

No worries, we'll catch up with each other and find you some food. We're a friendly lot. Any other forum members up for a gathering on Tyneside? We could have a mini BBP convention.

If 19th June is the date, count me in.

Hello Everyone

I just found this forum today, I'm so happy to have found it, I remember so well the day the crash happened, I so wish I could get to the launch, but as I live in the US now that could be a little hard :( , I'm so glad Bluebird is being so lovingly restorded, a wonderful memorial to a great man. I will visit often to see how things are going, take care. Anne

No, I was not aware of that. Thank you Keith. It may fit my schedule too, since I planned a trip to the Ruskin anyway.

What is up in the air, is when. I am trying to have someone get me into the grounds of the Windermere Steamboat Museum, which is undergoing renovation by the Lakeland Arts Trust. I am a member of the Arthur Ransome Society, and am trying to do a definitive article on the origin of the houseboat used in his Lakes stories. The prototypes were the Gondola, which I can get at easily, but mostly the Esperance, which I am told is still in the water at the museum. If anyone can help me to gain access to her, I would appreciate it. I am pursuing a few leads asking the same question on Tarboard - the online AR discussion site.
