We are sailing!

By TrevBatWCC    
Heading out on the 'Plymouth Venturer' into open waters, we turned right and after passing the Royal Citadel, sailed past The Hoe.
The most famous landmark on there is Smeaton's Tower. It was the upper portion of John Smeaton's Eddystone Lighthouse, which was originally built on the Eddystone Rocks. It was dismantled in 1877 and moved, stone by stone, to The Hoe where it was re-erected.
The large monument behind it is the Naval Memorial, erected July 1924. To the right of that is the Armada Memorial built in 1888 to celebrate the defeat of the Spanish Armada 300 years earlier.
All three can be best seen in V1.

Many thanks to Richard (DicksPics) for his User Award on my earlier upload 'Plymouth Venturer' , most appreciated 🏆👍

an excellent set that holds the viewer by the lapels, so to say... have you seen anyone wearing lapels of late?

A beautiful set Trev! I think they are all very good!!!

Excellent set Trev and interesting narrative. I like V1 where you get to see the monuments and lighthouse all together.

There's a stand off between the two towers, both wanting to be the important one.

(BTW, Trev, you don't turn right on a boat, you turn to starboard.Tongue)
