Weekly Photo Challenge – Broken (2)

I find it very sad…….



I am not a sailor, nor in anyway nautically inclined, but for some reason the sight of an old boat, high and dry, rotting where it is now ‘moored’ seems so sad. Gone are the days of battling the tides and winds.

Along this stretch of estuary (once a busy port) are numerous old boats…..most I suspect have been brought here by an owner, keen to restore and rebuild a little bit of waterways history, a challenge now perhaps beyond their skills or depth of their pocket.

Despite the sadness there is also something a touch romantic about the spot.
