Frigate Shtandart in Ramsgate Harbour for the weekend

I guess if you are in East Kent and were wondering about what to do this weekend then lashing out £2.50 to go over the Frigate Shtandart is a consideration.

It’s all on their website, see http://www.shtandart.ru/en/frigate here are a few of the photos I took in Ramsgate this morning.


The original of this frigate dates from 1703 a time when Ramsgate was doing considerable trade in the Baltic, so this may not be a first for Ramsgate, although it would be first for the Royal Harbour which was completed around 1790.










I did manage to get down there and do a quick sketch

Very tricky balancing of pad pen brush paint, I will try and get down to the crosswall with some sort of seat tomorrow, all that view of Ramsgate and no seats on the crosswall facing the town.

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
