alear~~~It is a very complicated and controversial relationship Ale' it is thought that the little one was born out of wedlock :)

Steve Stoddart~~~~It is not common knowledge Steve but it is true..many Daleks have retired here and live out their days sniping at the Goths! BTW, this one is naked!

poelarse~~~I think that the godfather of all capstans will be turning in his grave at the sight of your Rogaland version Per :)

lotus_ou~~Muchas gracias por sus agradable cumplido :) Sorry for my poor Spanish!

Norrel on November 11, 2011

We don't often see a 'dark' lighthouse, Jim. Most are brightly coloured in red and white.

Steve Paxton on December 7, 2011

Mark Lambirth on December 11, 2011

Looks like a giant chess game to me. Bollard - Pier 4, check. Lighthouse takes Bollard. Anyway, like and YS. Mark

Vince Byrne on December 14, 2011


Like the dalek!



Jim Evans (AXOTA) on December 14, 2011

steve111~~~Hiya bud! I hope it's boiling hot down-under and that monsoon has dried up. I hope you two are keeping busy..They tell me your'e building a little empire in Freemantle..Do you need any bar-staff?

Good to see you Steve :))

Mark Lambirth~~~A warm welcome Mark :)) Sorry about the late response, I'm always trying to catch up! That's a fine compliment BTW and I'm flattered by your extreme generosity. I enjoyed the game of chess, even if you did check-mate me!:)

V1NCE~~~~The loose inference is clearly recognised by many "Dr Who" fans Vince..more than I ever thought..

As for the old winch, it used to look like THIS before the wood-rot set in.

Thanks for stopping by guys..I enjoyed your comments!
