Seawitch named greengoon aka Latoya! as usual the wheelhouse was bedlam as they all wanted to steer the boat, the older pupils filmed and photographed the events taking place and also were taking pics of the younger ones with their heads sticking through mermaid, seagull and a shark cut outs. may I take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers and teachers for which I hope was a great afternoon for everybody and for further cementing our relationship with the local schools

What year did this museum open. I heard it's a fabulous place to visit. Thank you
Have heard about this museum and must visit when up that way again. Noticed a couple of old? worthies, Brian Walker and Bill Fraser in your photo section. Many a laugh with those guys at the seine net years ago. RH.
Is there anyone in Lossiemouth familiar with the name Edwards and Smith's. Father in law ( David Edwards ) belonged Lossiemouth he had brothers Jack and Albert, cousins were Falconer and James Smith. The reason I am asking his son David is visiting Buckie this weekend and he was dropping in to Lossie to see if he could meet up with anyone who knew the family.
Many thanks to Alec Campbell for his excellent judging skills at today's Seafest Sandcastle competition. It was well attended and so lovely to see so many youngsters on the beach.
