High and Dry

By marshfam19
Thank you for taking the time to look at my image and your kind comments and votes on yesterdays image.

When I saw this boat I just had to take a picture because I spent a long time wondering what the story was behind it, how on earth did it managed to get there, the tide never came near it and I don't think it would be very sea worthy, anyway it kept me entertained for a while wondering.

Thanks again for looking and have a great Thursday.

I recognised this straight away, Mary. It's near the end of Fishery Creek on Hayling Island, where I used to live. I passed it nearly every day when walking the dog. Believe it or not, the tide does come in there, but the water is never deep enough for this houseboat to be able to take to sea. It used to be lived in, but I watched it slowly deteriorate and in the end just couldn't imagine anyone still living there.
Here is a picture of it from my portfolio, with a v2 closeup.
a great and interesting find [super].
