With having many a sleepless night due to the heat I have been able to reorganise many of my Events/Albums on the Mac and I came across this image which I had forgotten.
This is gong to be another so here I am uploading at 2.20am.
About 14 vessels lie rotting away in this basin at Bowling, the remains of two showing left: not sure about the red and blue couple ....... the red is always there, the blue occasionally so it must still be in service. And to crown all there's a burned down pier b/g right.

My thanks to all who commented on Wild Red and with special thanks to Lillian and Ju {JuBarney} for their much appreciated User Awards.

Ronnie.

What a shame, it makes you wonder whether they have just been abandoned because of the expensive upkeep or whether they do indeed still have owners.
Some strong colours and excellent detail just shows all the decay.

well for sure on our next day out Ronnie I'm not going there with you as you may leave me behind with the other wrecks, as a young boy I used to go here a family friend and as it happened the family doctor had a converted fishing boat there called the GIRL JEAN I would probably be about 11 at that time gives you an idea how long it has been.

A fine capture of the state of affairs a true reflection of a lot of waterways and old harbour areas.

I slept last night from 11 to 10 this morning aided however by 7.5mg of sleeping tablet muggy evening as murder

Good to know the blue boat is still being used but good for you when they're both there for that added colour.
