Soggysetshire

Right time to get down to some serious Choccie box. Here we see the harbour at Porlock Weir. No point in going to the seaside if you don't look at boats in harbours. Going on one is a different kettle of fish (bit of wit there) I am not a good sailor

"kettle of fish"...wot a wit!

You must have been the source of all humour on this epic adventure, Bill!

Or...butt of all jokes...
Bill Phillips: Both Ray Both
beautiful shot. love the abundance of cool blues
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ayush. The weather was wonderful!
I like the little line up of beached boats!
Bill Phillips: Nothing more useless than a boat at low tide

That's fine, Bill - I would stay with you on land, just looking
Bill Phillips: You are a wise lady Lisl

This is more like it - let's forget all that stygian gloom and revel in chocciebox heaven!
Bill Phillips: It gets worse
Is that another mine I see Bill? I wonder where that little door (. Left of lock gate ) leads to?
Bill Phillips: It sure is Scotia! I have no idea about the door but it is intriguing
Wait. Do you have to be a good sailor before going on a boat, Bill????
Bill Phillips: No. Nelson was always seasick....I am both seasick and not fond of going on boats

How strange that this was taken from the spot that I portrayed you today on my blog Bill. People might imagine that we conspired, but then they have no way of telling.
Bill Phillips: Mere happenstance Ridge. But it only goes to show......

I like the shades of blue - this part of the harbour in Porlock Weir looks more ordered than the harbour Chad displayed today.
Bill Phillips: I like my choccie box to be tidy Philine
This is an insult to a chocolate box.
Bill Phillips: Sod off grin

Do I detect the 'smudge of vaseline' filter Bill?
Bill Phillips: It looks sharper in lightroom!

You would be alright on one of these boats; they go nowhere and spend 364.5 days a year sat on dry land smile I hope that sun was not too much of a shock.
Bill Phillips: It was for Chris as he lives in Bath where it rains almost every day

Ah... in the video I saw the four of you at the start; similar clothing wink
Bill Phillips: We were famous
Choccie box indeed........a lovely shot Bill smile
Bill Phillips: Cheers Martin smile
I love that even the shade is blue. Very, very nice, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Mary. Pleased you like it
hahaha nice one Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thanks very much Ronky.

You should be used to getting wet, if I can believe those two scoundrels. Nonetheless, no reason to go overboard when sailing.
Bill Phillips: Rain is rare in Droiters Louis unlike in Soggysetshire
Nice little harbour isn't it. My Father-in-law was in the Navy in WWII on the Arctic convoys among other things, and I understand there were few people who suffered seasickness as much as he did!
Bill Phillips: It is Brian. Some people never get over seasickness
Something is missing from this scene... can't put my finger on it... smile
Bill Phillips: Chris tap dancing?

A nice greasy fry up will set you to rights Bill smile It looks like an attractive place
Bill Phillips: I am on a diet! Mind you I have just had fish and chips at the Black country museum....cooked in dripping!

Great shot. As I told Chadruski, we don't see boats like this in Dutchlandshire. We always have water in the harbours even on low tide.
To me this is so fascinating.
Bill Phillips: You have very nice boats in Dutchlandshire. Lady P. To my knowledge many of our harbours are dry at low tide
The blue beached boats are fine looking craft, Bill, but my eye keeps going to the thatched roof houses on the left. What a view they must have!
A very nice Choccie box image Bill!
