May Bank Holiday Weekend

Unfortunately this morning the weather took a turn for the worse and it has been raining in Looe after having a few weeks of beautiful weather. Some of the shops in the town have been decorated for the Royal Wedding which happened yesterday and there are red white and blue flags and bunting in the street.

The town has been very busy with the extended bank holiday and even though the weather is a little disappointing there is a sailing regatta in the bay and a multitude of colourful sails can be seen from the harbour to the Island. I once tried sailing in a little enterprise dingy at a local reservoir and although it was very choppy I thought it was brilliant but the person who was with me and was lying in the front controlling the sails got tossed around and soaked and decided it was not for them. I did explain that we had managed not to capsize unlike some of the other boats with us, but to no avail and that will probably be the extent of my sailing.

On Saturday May 7th is the West Looe May Fayre which runs from 10.30am until 3pm. There is going to be dancing around a traditional Maypole, stalls, heritage walks and even some rock pooling. I hope the weather will be a lot better for their day but people always seem to make the most of it whatever the day brings. Since starting to write this the weather has brightened up and the sun is trying to come out. The raincoats are off, umbrellas put away and its a hive of activity again outside and in the shop.
