Very nice pics Bernie.
And the first pic very well illustrate the difference between a "Gaffed rig" and a "Bermuda rig"
The two closest are Gaffed rigged and the two behind are Bermuda rigged.
Is this from Isle of Wight by any chance?
A friend of mine has sailed there:)
Rather tricky with the tides.

Just talked to my sister living in Liverpool.
She thought is very windy today.
Gale she said.
That's not windy.
Strange because we both sailed with our father in a heavy storm when we where young:)

Did you ever do anything like this

Very nice Gnu.
Sitting next to a bonfire or a chimenea is really special.
You can sit there for hours just looking at it.
And playing the guitar.

With things as they are here currently I take quite a few pictures on my daily walk but often when I get home I get sidetracked and totally forget what I took.

So it was a nice surprise to remember I saw a quite unusual ship in the harbour on Friday



ML 1387 or Medusa a Harbour Defence Motor Launch or HDML .

They were designed in 1939 to protect ports and harbours from attack specifically from submarines.

Medusa is one of only 3 known survivors out of a total of 484 built worldwide.

Medusa is maintained by the Medusa Trust. Who's motto is "Preserving Medusa for Future Generations"

Preserving something from the past as it was is always a positive thing in my opinion.

The 2017 Rolex Fastnet Race will start on 06 August 2017.
The race starts off Cowes 50°45′34″N 1°18′1″W on the Isle of Wight on the south coast of England at the Royal Yacht Squadron. Leaving The Solent through The Needles Channel, the race follows the southern coastline of England westward down the English Channel, before rounding Land's End. After crossing the Celtic Sea, the race rounds the Fastnet Rock 51°23′22″N 9°36′08″W off the southwest coast of Ireland. Returning on a largely reciprocal course, the race rounds the Isles of Scilly before finishing at Plymouth 50°22′17″N 4°8′33″W.

I hope you will take some nice pics from that race Bernie:)

With the problems with my dad I have been forgetting the pictures I have taken.

I had forgotten that as I didn't visit dad on Sunday evening, I had decided to take a few pictures of the sunset from Fort Victoria.

There were quite a few boats about



The this was a bit later as the sun was just starting to go down



I also had completely forgotten about the swan and seven cygnets in the harbour.



I call this one "Pheasant and Sundial" .




I have noticed the male pheasant often suns himself at the end of the garden

Mr Gnu, can you please stop giving away photographers secrets!!

You should have said, "I waited for ages for the bee and butterfly to be on the same flower together, hoping the light would be just right. Finally all the waiting paid off"

But no, you said "I didn't know I'd photographed the bee next to the butterfly until I looked at the photos on my tablet...." :-)

Nice pics by the way!!

So today with things a little quieter with my dad I went for my walk and this was moored just outside Yarmouth Harbour.



A reminder of how the "other half" live. The MY Amaryllis (MY used to be motor yacht in this case means Mega Yacht)



To get an idea of the size, the white blob on the far righ is a person bending over the stern, also here the Wight Link ferry is passing astern



The info states, it has 6 staterooms for up to 12 people, just 12!! and a crew of 22.

If you really want to know what it looks like to be one of those 12 have a look here

Charter yacht Amaryllis

This is a definite case of "if you have to ask how much you can't afford it"

For reasons that are unlikely to be made public, I have been going out to the rubbish bin (trash can) around 10pm each night and have noticed the moon has been very bright.

I do like skies but find night skies are obviously more challenging to photograph with my trusty Ixus. However here are a few shots.



It sort of looks like below they are shadowy figures reaching up.




The moon is in just the right part of the sky to be framed by the trees.

However the one I like the most is this, I braced myself on my car and zoomed right in. (just needed a little twiddle in Photofiltre)



Now for a £100 pocket camera that is quite good.

Here are a couple of moon pix I took in 2012 from my back yard. I liked
how the tree branches framed the moon.

This bush grows in my back yard. It just showed up one day. I'm sure some bird
pooped the seeds out and they took root. Whatever it is, the bees and butterflies
love it. Unfortunately the flowers don't last long. Tiny flowers and small leaves.


This is honeysuckle that grows in my back yard.


This is what my back fence looked like before my idiot neighbor decided the honeysuckle
needed to be "trimmed." He wanted to cut away the dead bits. Unfortunately, the dead
bits grow under the live part and there's no way to cut them away without killing
the plant, as he soon learned. REALLY pissed me off. The honeysuckle used to smell
soooooo good in the spring, and the hummingbirds were all over it. Maybe some day it
will come back. There's still a little bit alive.

(I didn't resize this pic. I hope it's not too big for some of you.)

This is from my rose bush. It's not doing very well this year. I don't know if it's because I
haven't pruned it at all for a few years. This photo is from a few years ago.
