When I saw the prompt for this week I knew immediately some shots I wished to post.
You could argue that my first two pictures are not coastal views, but at least they are from a Yorkshire seaside town.
|Scarborough - Peasholm Glen|
At least there is writing on the postcard and , I believe Peasholm is a boating lake even if no boats are in sight.
|Scarborough Pleasure Park|
There are boats galore here, and a water chute - the bank on the right has seats to view acts at the open air theatre opposite. It looks a lot different today I'm told.
Fowey on the south coast of Cornwall is one of my favourite places to visit.
|Fowey - viewed from across the Fowey Estuary|
And if you look across the estuary in the other direction this is what you see.
|Polruan - viewed from Fowey|
But I've had to go to Stavanger in Norway for a shot of a ship of any size.
|Royal Yacht Britannia - Stavanger 1980s|
The Queen and Prince Philip were on board. I was working at Rosenberg Verft at the time.
On that royal note I'll leave you to check out other voyages and tales at Sepia-Saturday-167.
