Fai, thank you very much! A pity, we can't see the very strong wind, which nearly tore me off. It looked as if the boat looked for safety in the harbour. My best regards, May

Pascal, merci pour visiter cet'image. C'était à la côte Nord d'Aberdeenshire, le vent soufflait tellement que je pouvait presque pas ouvrir la porte de la voiture. Ce bâteau a sûrement vue beaucoup des orages. Amitiés, May

Hello, May! The clouds look ominous and the colors on the boat are beautiful. The wind might not be in the photo, but the feeling of cold is, and that alone makes me want to stay in the harbor! :)

Thanks Ryan! Did you notice that "Audacious" is its new name. Its old name "Endurance" has nearly washed off. I found this fact funny, regarding its battered and rusty body. I guess its used for fishing and surely it has seen many storms out on the sea.

Greetings, May

I didn't see "Endurance" at first, thanks for pointing it out. It seems the name did not endure as long as the boat. :)

Ryan, the changement of the name Endurance to Audacious might mean anything! :) It sure looks risky to travel on it in stormy weather, but maybe I am mistaken and seamen are audacious enough to work on it. I admire those people in any case, me having seen strong winds on the sea from the safe land, but never yet experienced any storm on water. May

Thank you so much, Blai!

I am glad that you consider studying architecture. It's true, mathematics and geometry are fascinating subjects. Of course history and archaeology are more than interesting as well and I think all three have something in common, they all have to do with people, their life and circumstances. I am sure you will choose the subject which suits you and anyway, (we) are learning all through life, so whatever you start with, your talent will enable you to do additional studies and you will improve your knowledge and connect the different subjects.

Best wishes, May

Looks great, what's happening this coming summer (2009) I'll be there from July 13th to Aug 15th. Coming over from Canada.

Thanks for viewing this photo. I don't know much more than you about Banff, but found among many others this link in the internet. Best wishes and have a nice journey, May

This fishing boat was originally registered in Banff as BF98 Endeavour (red hull), but was re-registered there as BF83 Audacious (blue hull) in 2007.

What a nice surprise!

Thank you SHoweMBOU for the information! I wish I could have spent more time there, it seemed quite a stormy day, but probably for the people who live there, it was rather normal weather :) I love the Scottish coast and the sea. Actually I travelled all around the coast, up on the east towards the West and further up to the North to return South along the West coast and Skye, etc.

Best regards, May
