Yummy little boat Grasshopper ... but who pulled the plug :) He seems quite content to wait for the tide to return ;)

See ya from little Racoon ;) who likes this point of view ;)

scml I caught my toe on something as I clambered down into the habour ~ next thing I know it was empty with a little glugging sound :))

Nick Todaro on October 19, 2010

Enjoy the thrills Nick, but don't get too close to the edge! :)) Nick

Damn little Grasshopper you must be more careful ;) and I do hope you put it back in ;)

Now tell me ... how the heck did it get the name of Mousehole Harbour ... not a very complimentary name at all ...

Catch ya soon from a bemused little Racoon ;)

Nick Todaro on October 19, 2010

scml, I too keep telling him to be careful but lately he seem to be quite fearless! :)) Nick

:o)))) I know Nick Knack ... it is a worry ;)

Nick Todaro on October 19, 2010

scml... I think I must be a bad influence on him! :)) Nick

I was worried that I might fall off ~ land on top of the mast and get tangled in the frigging rigging

scml on October 19, 2010

Or fall in the lap of the burley chap ... damn you were lucky :)

Nick Weall on October 19, 2010

Yes that could have been very awkward:))) ~ Lucky I was ~ Sleep well little Racoon :)

Nick Weall on October 19, 2010

scml It is called Mousehole Harbour because the village is called Mousehole too :))) Pronounced sort of like musszel

Patricia Hiele, ~ If you see a harbour at low tide then around six hours later it will be full with water at high tide ~ of course as the water rises boats can get in and out of this harbour long before high tide

a little info about tides

Yes around Brittainy for example there are also big differences between low tide and high tide levels

I'm so glad that you love my harobur shots LBM ~ most friendly greetings to you ~ GW
