Thanks for your clicks, comments & votes to my previous image for which I'm most appreciative.

I hope you may like my images of the Yacht today which were taken on Saturday at the entrance to Mudeford Harbour, in Dorset. The yacht was in trouble and was trying without success to navigate into the harbour via a narrow channel marked by buoys in order to avoid being grounded in the shallows. The problem was they were getting nowhere & the other boats which past by didn't want to help.
V1 It was fortunate that another boat (RIB) stopped to help them, otherwise, they would have had an accident in an area where there are strong tidal currents.
V2 The other boat towed them into the safer waters of the harbour.

Thanks for looking & have a great day. Smile

A salutary warning for all here - friends of mine had to be rescued in a kayak in Spain recently.

So much for a life on the ocean wave Fred. More to it than meets nthe eye it seems.

All`s well that ends well as Shakespeare said I do believe. A bit of drama out there on the ocean Fred, if only harm came from a sunburn that is a relief for them !
gorgeous colour with your Nikon
