What a great shot, Frank! I love how they always look like toys in a sandbox at low tide!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Elizabeth, yes, they do don't they.
One of the better boat pics...
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Larry.

Floating on a sea of what looks like rough mud Frank. I hope you're enjoying your holiday in the north of this strange country..
Frank L Croston.: It is just that Chris, I'm told they ( whoever they are ) wont pay to dredge the harbour.Yes, strange land indeed....

And Fleetwood just missed out on promotion Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Yes they did, the grounds not far from here Andrew.
J'aime ces lieux très pittoresques !
Frank L Croston.: Me too Claudine, always of interest.

What a wonderful point of view, Frank. You are lucky to live so close by water and these boats. There is something about a harbour. (we have one too)
Frank L Croston.: I had to take this ( and tomorrows ) through an ugly fence, its a shame it cant be tidied up. It is always interesting though.

A boat slide. Must be rough on the hulls, taking the strain directly on the rocks. But they make for a great picture.
Frank L Croston.: You wonder what would happen if they ended on their side...Thanks Louis.
In your spare time get your shovel out and start digging.
Frank L Croston.: Anything else you want doing ? smile
A fine shot Frank, it's funny how tides empty out some harbours and others stay full of water round our coastline.
Frank L Croston.: We seem to have a really big difference between low and high tides here, it must be about 12ft or so.
That's quite the scene. Really like those little boats.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Mary, they do look good.
Love the names given these boats, Frank; especially the "our Roxy" one. Something you would hear someone say on an old broadcast of Coronation Street.
Frank L Croston.: I liked that one too, you are right Beverley smile

lots to look at there
Frank L Croston.: Always, Paul. Its an interesting place.
Beached boats like this always amaze me, Frank. I never get used to seeing them like this. As you already know, we don't have them in America!
Frank L Croston.: Common around here Ginnie. I have to time my shopping by the tides, otherwise its a long walk round. smile
i like your new neighborhood Frank... the boats have all gone to the beach for a suntan....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Me too Peter, though I miss my old neighbours....It looks that way, not much sun since I took this though!
A gorgeous shot Frank.......love the composition! smile
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Martin, I had to work at this, there is a fence that I stuck the camera through and hoped for the best!
Enough boats for a month of Fridays, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: And more Tom if I go into the marina.
