A sad weekend – Watercolour

Its desperately sad to see the Norwegian flag at half mast on the many tall ships at Lerwick Harbour, in the Shetland Islands. The tragedy, which our small neighbour is going through is unimaginable. The “Tall Ships” race had just completed the penultimate leg from Glasgow to the Shetland Islands and arrived a few days ago. Strong winds meant the ships set sail, a day late, for Stavanger. It was, during their visit, that the bombing and shooting outrage took place. By the time you view this the crews, many of them young people, will be far out in the North Sea. Their families must be desperate to be reunited with their sons and daughters. God speed, young sailors.
