Hiding out in the harbour - abc

Highlights on the high seas

I'm beginning to feel like Ross from Friends talking to Rachael. I never deserted the blog. I WAS ON A BREAK. Can I please add not by choice. My psycho laptop, the one with suicidal tendencies had a breakdown and fell into a coma. The nut job laptop is back, motherboard images intact and whatever therapy it needed to cope with me constantly abusing it by uploading soooooooooooooooooo many images we have reached an understanding. So here's the first one to get us back into the groove before I go off at a complete tangent as usual and into a mega rant about island life not being all it should be. A sweet little finish the day off after the rugby on the way home shot of the harbour. Gotta say, it's been all doom and gloom weather wise, but just as the laptop arrived home the glorious light returned to our shores and the wonderful sky blue appeared on the high( ok harbour inlet but let me manipulate the truth as always for purple prose effect and slip in another H) just waiting for me to capture. The vessel moored too nicely weathered and hell I've even got people in there walking to the lighthouse, just to prove I ain't the only one residing here. Just the only one in hiding. Those privy to my FB real persona can vouch for the fact I actually do have a cunning highway woman outfit. Another h, though on reflection not perhaps the most inconspicuous of outfits to wear taking photos.

Well I'm hopefully back, but I'm not a slave to the blog and this is not a to be taken too seriously look at the world I live in. Photography yes, words no. This isn't a travelogue but you will learn more about true island life and quirks than any book/site/or I love the island so much I won't have a word said against it types. It's a love hate relationship after all.

What a very beautiful picture! It could be called a harbor also, right? : ) Lots of H opportune words today!

Well, Well. Agree to be not to be a slave of blog. Sometimes, a photo speaks them all.
Well come back!

good to have you back at the helm of the harbour hen

Chuck Pefley said...

Hah! Just as apologetic as ever, I see. And what in the world are you doing with real people in your photo? So over-the-top-out-of-character for you, dear Babooshka -:)

Hope you and your wayward recalcitrant laptop have finally had a meeting of minds and purpose.

LOL!!

Lovely!
Sorry about your computer, but it was probably nice to take a break, no?

One of just a few places in UK I've never visited, Isle of Man - and lived most of my life fairly close, in Manchester.

You know the saying, a picture is worth a thousand words! I believe it. Glad you are back!

Jon Ramsey said...

Beautiful and very funny Babs. Great to see you not been captured.

Nice to have you back. I think its always a love hate relationship with a computer. they can certainly put a dent in our style.

Rob said...

And that's our A.B.C's on the high seas. It is quite a visual beauty. And of course you need a boat and pier to depict island life.

Always such beautiful photography and eloquent narrative. Computers are enough to drive one over the edge - when they work, life is fine - when they don't, it's all downhill.
Enjoyed your post.

This lighthouse looks so lonely, beautiful picture !

Lew said...

Maddening when our equipment fails us! Glad your laptop is resurrected and we can see a little more of Ramsey through your lens! Calm seas and great light for your return!

Grace and Bradley said...

"On a break, " eh? Does this mean you were seen in the company of ANOTHER laptop?!

Welcome back. Nice pic.

Jay said...

I too have gazillions of images clogging up my poor laptop. I shall take your post as a dreadful warning and get some offloaded onto a separate hard drive!

Sheila @ A Postcard a Day said...

And very happily harmonious!
