Port St. Mary

          Another photo from Port St. Mary on the Isle of Man.  I took four or five shots of this yacht coming in and finally settled on this one.  I had to almost lie down in these orange flowers to get the angle I have here.

          We had spent a few hours wandering around this pretty little harbour and had stopped for a bite to eat and some liquid refreshment in one of the older establishments.

          The yachts had been forced to wait outside for the tide to allow them entrance and I had taken an earlier photo of them through the “lobster pots” on the wall of the jetty you can see here.  Eventually the tide arrived and they filed into the safety of the harbour.

           More from before : pictures and posts about our holiday in the “Isle of Man” in July 2009.

  2. This is a lovely – very picturesque – photograph. I like the feeling of calm; it would be great to be sitting there right now with a good book and a coffee. Incidentally, what’s the red and white building? Is it one of those pepperpot lighthouses?

    • Thanks, Port St. Mary was very quiet and peaceful, I don’t remember any shops, just some houses and the little pub by the harbour. The red and white building was a lighthouse, a very tiny one 🙂

    • Thanks, the path we were walking along had houses on one side and their gardens, whether by design or with natures help, had spilled across the path to the side of the harbour. These orange flowers were all around me and screamed out for the camera.
