The sand makes a fine bg, lovely texture in the wood - and naturally, very natural rust on the nut! Smile

Love the title of this smashing Mikbee shotSmile Looks like it had plenty of pressure applied when that old Nut was tightened. The Washer still looks in good nick, though I guess you could say that the Sea is the biggest washer of allSmile
Great stuff about your Wedding Day find too.

I am sure Neil is right. I certainly wouldn't fancy chomping on one of these, Mick.

A cracking image but that title is simply superb.
