By TrevBatWCC    
Heading back alongside Peel's harbour towards where our coach was picking us up, I looked back towards the castle through the dozens of masts on the boats moored up. The longish focal length of 100mm helped to exaggerate the feel of them all being bunched up together.
As there was still a bit of time to spare before getting back to the coach, a nearby pub, 'The Creek Inn' begged me in to sample the local brew 🍺 I have to confess it didn't take much begging! I was glad I did - little did I know at the time it would be the last pub I'd be going in 🥺

Lovely image Trev. Seems a long time ago that we could go to these sort of places.

Stay safe and well.

I love the 'busyness' of this shot, Trev and can hear the clinking of the masts ........
........... or is your glass in the pub I can hear??🍺🍺 A distant memory now, unfortunately!Sad
A well taken and 'full of interest' image.

Itís when the wind makes them rattle Trev that one really becomes aware of them! Always good for a shot though.

That's one busy marine Trev. Don't think they'll be sailing any where soon though.

Good grief, there must be some posh folk there. Love the profusion of masts.
Perfectly composed and captured Trev, some lovely boats.
