I'm gutted I didn't get to see the Tall Ships due to been away all weekend. Everyone has told me it was wonderful and everyone is very proud to be from Hartlepool. I caught a tiny bit when the ships sailed off at 6pm but expected to see more sails :(
I think a longer lens will be on my christmas list after seeing the big daddy lenses some people had!!
MSH August 2010 "local hero" the Tall Ships has been Hartlepool's local hero, 970,000 visitors apparently!
