    Default Fleetwood Boats


    Found these pics from over a year ago so thought I would share.
    I popped in here while on hol with my lad last year. There is an array of abandoned trawlers in various states of decay.

    Despite the miserable day these things are pretty photogenic, they do feel like skeletons of living things when you are in amongst em.

    Looks like the ideal place for some sunset photography. Nice photos.
    Don't worry about security until you've been caught.

    Nice, the mud here's horrible I nearly lost a shoe!
    No one ever wins. No one finally loses, except the dead. Under the sun they rot together with absolute biological equality.
