Richard: Rod Stewart- Sailing

Richard: Rod Stewart- Sailing

My parents came to South Shields in the 1970’s. My Dad was studying at the Marine DSC_0421College, one of the best in the world.

My Mum filmed my first birthday party- me in the sitting room at home and in the background Rod Stewart is on the telly singing I am Sailing. This song remind me of a really great childhood, lovely neighbours, happy memories.

My sisters have left the North East now. But I can’t ever leave South Shields.
