hermosa panoramica. Que lugar es este? de que pais? te felicito por la coleccion de fotos que tenes en Panoramio. Todas bellezas naturales y paisajes fascinantes que me permiten viajar por el mundo sentada en mi escritorio- Saludos desde Argentina

Thank you John for this comment. I do share your prefference too :)

This is Peel Harbour before they built a Marina. There is a flap gate down by that red vessel in the distance, which keeps boats afloat at all states of the tide. Trouble is , when the tide is out [ beyond the flap gates ] the boats cannot enter or leave the marina and then only for a few hours when the tide is in . If the tides don't suit your sailing times ....hard luck ! What a pointless exercise . Further, the river which enters at the top end of the Marina fills it up with silt which normally would wash out to sea with the twice daily tides. So now, instead of a sparkling clean harbour, which was cleansed twice a day by the tides, we now have a murky, brackish expanse of water which doesn't go anywhere where neither fish nor bird can be found ..... and needs dredging out often. The boats, which at one time would be high and dry on the harbour bottom at low water when minor repairs and painting could be carried out, now have to be lifted out by crane for the smallest hull maintenance. In my opinion the Marina was a complete and expensive disaster .

Hi John, I don't know your Island but I do like very much how you look at her. Love those pictures. Esspecially this one and also that with lichen and thrift. Cheers, Remi

Hey Remi.....Many thanks for your kind comments. I am now working my way through your collection......great photos. The flowers are what we call sea pinks....found growing near the coast...usually on grassy cliff tops. I think the proper name is thrift. Again, many thanks for your comments Best greetings to you from Yn Ellan Vannin [ The Isle of Man ]......John
