Seahouses harbour

And so on to Seahouses, which is a lovely little seaside town with proper amenities like good fish and chip shops and pubs, ice cream and gift shops. It has an attractive harbour, which gave me an hour of deep enjoyment, wandering around with my camera in the evening light. You can take boat trips from here to the Farne Islands to see the birds and seals. Seahouses also has a RNLI Lifeboat. I always used to love looking around lifeboat stations as a child and marvelling at the heroic stories - they usually have pictures and newspaper cuttings on display about their rescues. I find it astonishing that the lifeboats are crewed by volunteers - what heroes!

I took far too many photos that evening. (Thank heavens for digital!) The colours were glorious and it was all so tempting.

  3. Oh lovely pictures. Thank heavens for digital, thank heavens for Saltaire Daily Photo. That first shot has powerful resonances of the opening sequence of Jazz on a Summers' Day.

  8. Oh it's almost as if there is a tiny mermaid there that I see in one of those reflections in the water. How beautiful! ~Lili

  9. To come up with these two pictures as a definitive memory of Seahouses harbour ......impressive, I'm surprised the water was that still in the first picture with the amount of moving traffic. !
