Just been updating and looking through my photo library.
I snapped this one yesterday morning down on the beach opposite Government Road. I like the red hull on the yacht, the bright lifebuoys and the colour of the planks of the sheds below.
I don’t pay too much attention to what boats are in the yard at anyone time, though I’ll notice a boat that looks unusual or is much larger than the others. It’s always good to see a tractor towing a boat on a trailer in or out of the yard. It’s an activity that sort of feels local to Hoylake and, not that you should need reminding, that we live by the sea and we have strong ties to it.
Further along the beach our local pirate ship, Grace Darling, has had some repairs recently and she’s currently flying a Manx flag:
Having searched, the Manx flag is a “triskelion or triskele… a motif consisting of a triple spiral exhibiting rotational symmetry. The spiral design can be based on interlocking Archimedean spirals, or represent three bent human legs.”
I don’t like pub quizzes myself, but if you do, that’ll be an answer for you one night 🙂
