Soggysetshire

So here we are in Watchet, or as the locals would say "who do you think you are looking at?" 

 

The item in the foreground, in photographically dominant red is an old mine. You see these a lot at coastal places and they usually have a slot in them so that you can make a donation to the Seaman's mission. As far as I know the mines are no longer live

I am guessing Mr Plod was soon on the scene to quizz the intentions of that nefarious-looking gang that you have captured fleeing the scene after an unsuccessful attempt to break in to the red mine, Bill.
Bill Phillips: They were off to take illegal photographs of the museum Ray

You had beautiful weather. Looks like a nice little town.
Bill Phillips: It is very pleasant Lady P
I actually like the little blue boat flower planter!
Bill Phillips: Why wouldn't you? You see a lot fold boats turned into planters in places where there are boats, like seaside towns

It would be an unfortunate state of affairs should the mines be primed & live - then we'd all have to watch it

Gedditt!!
Bill Phillips: That is 2 Watchet jokes so far, less than anticipated but still 2 too many
actually you look like a gang of real state developers arriving to a new virginal town with obscure intentions
Bill Phillips: That is a good description JC....totally inaccurate but good
I see you had a beautiful day for your get-together there, Bill. You even have a Boat Friday pic here! smile
Bill Phillips: We had three days altogether ....and all lived to tell the tale

Bill Phillips: Everyone is a comedian these days grin

a nice Boat Wednesday - and a typically lovely English seaside town - I miss only the gutteridge crawling along the outer walls.
Bill Phillips: There is too much gutteridge in pictures Philine....mind you having said that I have just remembered what I have posted for tomorrow!

I was in Watchet only a few weeks ago. Looks like you had great weather.
Bill Phillips: We did indeed Penny it was glorious!
I am wondering why you are calling it soggy when the sky is blue and the sun is shining.
Bill Phillips: There was a lot of flooding in Somerset, particularly the Somerset Levels, during the winter

Given that they have taken to parking their boats on the road I wouldn't bother with the donation.
Bill Phillips: Harsh but fair Mike
One way to check for live mines is to drop a £2 coin into them Bill. if no explosion then you can just feel good about yourselfsmile
Bill Phillips: Trouble is either way you lose two quid
A lovely shot Bill.........you were fortunate with the weather smile
Bill Phillips: It was about perfect Martin.
You managed to include a lot of interesting things in this one shot, Bill. I'm especially drawn to the Market House Museum.
Bill Phillips: The museum was small but interesting Beverly
One of your best ,the red really brings the image to life.you are my hero.
Bill Phillips: Oh thank you Michael. I am so pleased you like itwink
You haven't tried pushing the odd prong sticking out from one of these? smile
Bill Phillips: Many times as a child.....

They went to a museum? They should watch out, as they could be put on exhibition.
Bill Phillips: I told them to keep moving for that very reason Louis
love this Bill! The red "blob" actually make ths image brilliant Bill!
Bill Phillips: Haha that blob was once full of explosives
Nice shot of the centre of town Bill. I seem to recall going here many years ago when our kids were small, although I do know of course that the WSR.runs right through down by the harbour area.
Bill Phillips: Chris rushed to get a picture of Number 88 but my camera was in the car as I had gone to the loo....as you do at our age

What lovely blue skies and a no longer live mine - great conditions for a jolly day out I'm thinking
Bill Phillips: It was great fun with this bunch of reprobates
I hope they are no longer live despite their vivid colour Bill!
Fine capture.
Bill Phillips: Happily not Richard!!

We had a lovely family holiday in a rented cottage about 50 yds from where you're stood. It was during that week that Madeleine McCann went missing.
Bill Phillips: I wonder if they will ever find her?
Lovely shot Bill, not seen one of these mines for ages. Very quiet scene with the casual walkers having a chat.
A sweet little place, Bill. I like the old mines, they are a part of my past.
