RAMSEY BEACH BLUES, 300TH POST, MY WORLD

Ramsey Beach Blues,
 My world,
 300th post


Yes today is my 300th post. I'd like to say the sun came out and the sky was pure blue for me but no it was dull and cloudy. Not really beach walking  with the camera weather. So an archive when the sun was out and the sky was blue. As you can see this stretch of beach is very sandy normally damp. This is not a sunbathers beach because the sand is always damp  and you would be washed away on your lilo or beach towel quite often. It is a great walkers beach though. Always dogs running about, flocks of oystercatchers, and the occasional brave child who doesn't mind the wind and rain with a bucket and spade.  What  you can see is the jetty with what looks like two lighthouses on it. Another optical illusion. One jetty is behind the other, a lighthouse on each one. Often you will see fishermen here. Not sure if it's for the fish or relax but the end of the jetties are often busy. Behind me out of shot would be the Queen's Pier which has featured in many posts. The slither of land you can see on the left over the jetty is actually some way off in the distance and part of the bay on the other side of the harbour. Yes Ramsey is greedy we have two beaches.  

Thanks to the My World team where other folks world's can be seen.

All that I have to say is a big thank you to all who have ever stopped by commented, advise, work, sales, emailed etc. Changes are afoot with the blog where I am hoping to show you larger images. Got one or two other ideas as well but for now will keep quiet about those. You understand I have had so much stolen either work or ideas that until they are live I will keep a zipped mouth. Facebook the experiment is still going strong. Join me us just for fun, but able to add a few island extras there. My new laptop will be here soon and then it will be the new website.


THANK YOU

Congratulations on a very successful 300 posts. I won't reach 300 until April.

I wonder how many of your readers were not familiar with Ramsey or the Isle of Man before becoming readers of your posts, or were aware that it exists or its location, but had not seen any photos of it except on your site.
