Seaside fun

Hi there, 

I've just been having fun today, no reason to make this tag. I just love this little boy/girl sitting staring out to sea, it reminds me of holidays to the seaside with my family as a child. 


 Ah! such memories............. burnt shoulders, cucumber sandwiches with gritty sand in them, swallowing gallons(slight exaggeration here) from forays into the sea. He! he! he, you've just got to love it!

Stamp by, Beryl Peters for Personal Impressions I fear it is discontinued, I purchased it from eBay last year and cannot find it anymore:(
Text stamp, Tim Holtz, Good thoughts plate.
Punched foliage, Leone EM
Flowers by Artoz bought at the Craft Barn, Lingfield

Having mentioned the boat we were on in Holland thought I'd share a couple of pics of it



This is the front, Bow?



And this the back, Stern?

As you can guess I'm not that au fait with all the terms although I feel I know the boat intimately:)
We did have many laughs and so much to eat and so many things to see and do, it was really interesting.
