The weather was fantastic on Costa Clyde, especially on Saturday when it was definite t shirt temperature and this helped bring out the crowds determined to enjoy the fun and sunshine.
With so much happening I've decided to do 2 blog posts to cover all the weekends goings on, firstly I just have to tackle those pesky Vikings!
Saturday afternoon saw the start of the well publicised and much anticipated Land and Sea event, commemorating 750 years of the Battle of Largs. I joined the large crowd of locals and tourists lining the promenade eagerly waiting for the 'invading' longboat to appear on the horizon, ready to fend off the imminent attack. When the tiny white sail did appear it didn't actually seem that threatening, especially as it was dwarfed by the huge CalMac ferry!
