Gosh look at all that silt... time to dredge?

I really love all the patterns and the boats remind me of kites that have been brought to the ground but remain tethered.
Frank L Croston.: Nobody wants to pay for it Elizabeth, usual story....Thats a very poetic description. smile
C'est intéressant de voir le fond de la mer.
Frank L Croston.: From above yes, Martine smile

Blimey what a sight. Presumably the place was once a fishing port?
Frank L Croston.: Isn't it. I don't know, you landlocked midlanders, Fleetwood was the main fishing port on the West coast Chris, it was slowly killed off by the Cod wars with Iceland, as that was their main fishing grounds, mostly inshore boats use it now, the main dock has been converted to a marina.
J'aime les marees basses ..
Frank L Croston.: Always interesting Claudine.

The look like they are sailing on sand waves.
Frank L Croston.: They do Anne, yes.
Here in the Maritimes, The Bay of Fundy produces extreme tides and the tidal bore. For those who have never experienced it, it can be amazing. We even have surfers do the tidal bore.

This kind of looks like toy boats in a sand box. With a shift tilt process, it would really do that.
Frank L Croston.: They do look that way Mary. I've seen films of tidal bores here in England.Here it comes up, and goes down...
Waiting for the tide to come in. Are these fishing boats, Frank?
Frank L Croston.: They are Beverley, commercial inshore boats, and boats for pleasure fishing trips.
Great shot Frank, that's quite a depth of tidal rise and fall.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Brian, it is for sure.As long as it stays that and no more smile
good point of view Frank... the silt on the ground is building up... soon they won't won't have eough of the tide to get out of the harbour....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Peter, if it keeps on the same they will have to do something eventually.
Even more Boat Fridays!
Frank L Croston.: I need never take another, Tom.
