postcards: day three
Wed 8th Aug 1973*: Our very own Festival of Photography and Fun on board the Balmoral - two tickets for £1 for afternoon journey to Porlock and back. Highly recommended along with "Parlour Specials" for jolly days at the seaside - a must for Ilfracombe. Outgoing journey a gay, breezy jaunt - binoculars looking everywhere. Seaward side journey more interesting than landward. Turning for home, sun went in, anoraks came out for a cold, choppy steam home. Cod and chips twice was the shout when in port, home and dry!
