A Knight’s Tale (127: The Big C)

Next, Sam displayed his boat, Pacific Pete, at Crick Boat Show in Northamptonshire. As a publicising exercise, my son sat on board and answered questions about what this was all about. One gentleman went to great lengths to obtain a good view; another seemed more interested in his lunch; was a third offering Sam a pint?

Back home in Newark, during the Dragon Boat Festival,

Louisa took a turn at fielding the questions. The gentleman seemed more engrossed than did his partner.

Sam’s friend Lewis Cove carried a bucket collecting donations for the Atlantic row, undertaken the following year.

Inspired by

Hokusai’s Great Wave, I designed the logo Lewis totes. The idea was a play on The Big Sea and The Big C, in aid of which Sam was rowing.

I am an octogenarian enjoying rambling physically and photographing what I see, and rambling in my head as memories are triggered. I also ramble through a lifetime's photographs. In these later years much rambling is done in a car.

  1. Funnily enough, Hokusai’s wave is now being thought of in many circles as being one of those “rogue waves” which have been discovered in recent years. It certainly is a big ‘un !

    1. He did, Dwight – all local companies. As his name is Samson Knight I asked the luggage manufacturer for sponsorship. Since he eventually won the race, they missed a trick with their refusal. Thanks very much.

  2. HA on the guy getting a great view! I wonder if he bought his pants at The Big and REALLY Tall Store! 😉 😀
    What great photos, Derrick! And the logo is superb!
    Love all the smiling faces in the photos and your comments on the people!
    The Dragon Boat Festival looks so fun and so cool!
    (((HUGS))) 🙂

  3. The logo designed by you is exquisite, capturing the magnitude of all, Big Sea and the Big C and Sam’s efforts to raise funds for the cause. Evidently, it is a landmark event for the family.
