Rain doesn't stop play...

The rain and cold put the dampeners on Hartlepool's Maritime Festival but didn't spoil it.
There were lots of things to do. From shopping at the French market to dancing to live reggae and salsa, watching street artists strut their stuff around the Marina, supping a beer while watching many aquatic feats, etc...


I'm not sure that a little ray of sunshine would've brought any more visitors to Hartlepool. The festival was fighting for attention with Wimbledon men's final between Federer and Nadal.
Even they had to dodge a few showers!



















Let's hope that next year the weather will be much better.

That's a shame. Rain AND cold are a bit much in June.

I felt sorry for the Sea Cadets, having to parade in the pouring rain...
