Another image with a nautical twist. This depicts a section of frosted rope which was found at Chatham Dockyard. Chatham being a Naval Dockyard made its own hemp ropes, and still makes a rope to this day for restoration purposes and the like.

Thank you so very much for all your wonderful comments and messages following yesterdays upload "Whether is was cafe latte or minestrone coloured, it certainly got people talking".

I shall be remaining indoors for another week or so, I was at the Doctors yesterday, and on top of everything else I have been diagnosed with Bronchitis so my breathing is somewhat laboured. It will give me a chance to catch up with a few lose ends here and there.

Well I hope that you all have a great day.

Regards as always Nathan

I'm rather partial to the 'twister' ice lolly. Not too dissimilar to your image, just different colours Grin

Good Grief Nathan, lady luck is not following you around at the moment is she? I hope you get well very soon. Lovely, macro of the rope. I have been promising myself a trip to Chatham for years but haven't got there yet. Hope to this year!
Take care,
