Looe luggers getting ready for the Looe Lugger Regatta

This is a digital painting effect from one of my original photo of Looe. The Looe Lugger Regatta is a two day event and takes place every two years and many luggers return to Looe to race in this fabulous event. The views are fabulous as the luggers can be so clearly seen arriving and also heading down the river to race. At the end of the racing they return to moor for the night and it is lovely to wander around both West and East Looe to look at them.

A lovely view of Looe on a misty morning just after sunrise. Nelson the one eyed Seal was a popular visitor to Looe Harbour for over 25 year. The seal took up residence on Looe island and would swim over to the harbour to entertain and be entertained by tourists and locals. After Nelson died in 2003 a bronze sculpture was commissioned and created by Cornish scultor Suzie Marsh.
