RS Elite at her mooring
You get them don’t you? Today has been horrendous. Guess what I’ve been trying to do; I’ve been doing everything in my power to install an anti-virus application on my EEE PC 2G. At long last, after hours of frustrating glitches, I’ve succeeded, probably more by luck than purpose.
At least, now I have a viable miniature laptop which is very suitable for use aboard ‘Ladybird’. One thing remains to be done, and that’s to find a way of reducing the size of photos so that they have less pixels. I downloaded a small Windows application for reducing the size of photos to 640 x 480, but for some reason it will not work. I’ll persevere, because uploading large images to my Blog will take time; besides, I doubt many of you will want to open large-scale photos - that’s if you click on the photos for detailed viewing.
Today, as it’s been very busy for me, I’ll just leave you with a few photos, all sized at 640 x 480 pixels.
One photo is of a model Sri Lankan proa, the sort offered to holiday makers. I bought the model as a memento of my holiday there and as a reminder of the real life proa I sailed on. Another photo is of a racing buoy on the north side of the River Crouch, opposite the entrance of the River Roach, and the third photo is of a RS Elite Keelboat at her Burnham mooring.
