The lovely Karleen sits dejectedly on the harbour side in North Sunderland.
Before you go looking for a map, North Sunderland is probably 60 miles from Sunderland as the crow flies; indeed, it is much closer to Scotland than to Wearside. Until two days ago I would have said Seahouses
harbour, but the sign at the entrance definitely said North Sunderland. Mrswoolybill and I went there for a bag of chips.
Karleen is rudderless at the moment. That means she's as good at navigating the salt seas as the Venus de Milo would be at doing the dishes. This is her stern. I expect she is of the genus or species known as a coble
, but as I am a devoted landlubber I am uncertain.
Tomorrow I shall post another picture of Karleen to show that a rudder is not all she is lacking...........
