Sunset in Herne Bay

A few days ago, I went to Herne Bay and this was what the ski looked like.

"Louis" is buried deeper than his cowbell in a work project for the next several weeks. He will stop and visit, but may not stay long enough to 'sign the guest registry'.

This is lovely, Rose. What is that out there in the middle of the bay? Not a boat, surely? Maybe a structure to warm boats of dangers below?

Nice shot!
Thank you.

Ms M said...

Enchanting, peaceful. Oh, to sit by the bay and watch the sun go down.

Nice sunset, Rose. I like your photography.

What magnificence you have captured, Rose! Nature is quite a master painter and thanks to you we've gotten to suspend the moment and enjoy the artistry. Bravo!

Hi Rose, To swim the channel would you start from Herne Bay? Looks very calm.

Petrea said...

Quite a lovely shot.

Harry Makertia said...

Nicole said...

Hey guys
I m glad you all enjoyed the picture.

It is always a honour to have you visiting and if you take the trouble to sign the Guest Book even nicer. I am guilty of that too!

Julie
In the middle of the bay is the old main building of the pier. Someone told me that is all what is left of the pier...

=Thank you. I was lucky because my husband was taking some pictures of the sky and I just borrowed his camera (and his settings!) and voila!

Ms M
You are right. It was one of those days that we felt like buying a bought and sail into the sunset...

Abraham
And I L-O-V-E yours!

Babooshka
It was one of the most beautiful evenings I have ever seen. Just perfect.

Coltrane_lives
No photography could have captured the beauty of the place. Everything was perfect. The warmth, light, the segulls, the happy voices of the people around us, the gentle waves breaking in the ramp where near the boats... so much to see, to feel, to experience...

John
Haha...is it a challenge? I wish I had the guts to do it. I m too lazy so it will be just a dream...
The official starting point for swimming the Channel is Dover.

Petrea
Coming from you I take it as double compliment ;) I love all of your stuff.

Harry
There is a light house near there but that is the old pier house.

Nicole
I m not sure... but it is warm enough for people play in the water.

Cali
Now you know what I am up to ...:)

Jackie
I know what you mean... I promise you I didn't photoshopped it!

Rose you are quite right, the structure in the middle of the sea is the end of Herne Bay Pier. Apparently the walk way to the end has sunk twice... There is currently a campaign to rebuild the pier, with a veiw to putting a conference centre at the end, this would bring more visitors into the town and support the economy! By the way, great shot Rose.
