Gravesend and Tilbury visit

Saturday, August 16, 2014

Last Wednesday I visited Gravesend on my way to Tilbury blockhouse fort. I went with a few friend and their granddaughter Daisy who is 6.

After parking the car We walk to a church where there is a statue of Pocahontas.

Here is a little history for those who have not heard of her.

Pocahontas (born Matoaka, known as Amonute, and later known as Rebecca Rolfe, c. 1595 March 1617) was a Virginia Indian] notable for her association with the colonial settlement at Jamestown, Virginia. Pocahontas was the daughter of Powhatan, the paramount chief[1] of a network of tributary tribal nations in the Tsenacommacah, encompassing the Tidewater region of Virginia. In a well-known historical anecdote, she is said to have saved the life of an Indian captive, Englishman John Smith, in 1607 by placing her head upon his own when her father raised his war club to execute him.

Pocahontas was captured by the English during Anglo-Indian hostilities in 1613, and held for ransom. During her captivity, she converted to Christianity and took the name Rebecca. When the opportunity arose for her to return to her people, she chose to remain with the English. In April 1614, she married tobacco planter John Rolfe, and in January 1615, bore him a son, Thomas Rolfe. Pocahontas's marriage to Rolfe was the first recorded interracial marriage in North American history.

This is the Statue that is in St Georges Church gardens.

With Daisy

After about an hour we left to catch the ferry over to Tilbury but that is another story for later

Have a good weekend

My little friend

    Love the statue. Daisy is a cutie. I bet she had fun on the ferry. I will check out Flicker later on.
p.s. One of my Hubby's Grandmother's was pure Cherokee. She married a man of Irish decent.
So my Hubby is Cherokee/Irish with a dash of Scandinavian Viking.

Busy weekend

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Well it was busy weekend for my club who needed a new roof on its out of town HQ. This took both Saturday and Sunday to put up and left the felt to be put on this weekend.

I took my camera along and one of our members use a video camera running 1 frame a second. When edited it took the 20 or so hours of work into 18 minutes. I wish that I could put it up for all to see but you will have to settle for my stills.

Laying out

More timber is needed

Getting the roof ready

Cutting the sheets

You will have to wait until next week (if it doesn't rain) for the finished pictures

Bloors Wharf

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Yesterday I had my first real rest from exercising for a long while, this gave me a chance to go out with my camera. This is something that I have not done for a long while.

Sure I have taken pictures at the car shows I go to but that is not what I am interested in as I like to take pictures of wildlife.

I set off to my favorite place where the riverbank juts out into the river, this give you a good all round view of the river. Here are some of the picture I took. I have not looked up the wildflowers but you will know most of them.

This one is the best I think.

There were a lot more birds but there were too far out for the camera but I enjoyed using my telescope watching them.

More to come later in the week, please enjoy.

I have not only a monsoon raining down on me but the granddad of all storms.

I tried to get some pictures tonight of the lightening but not good as they were behind the houses. I have got the afterglow.

Time was 2130 BST

Not that good as this is my first time.

    I like the bluish picture. It's hard to capture lightening. Hope the storm doesn't last long!
