Hi Donmac! My grandfather often told me stories of how he braved these very seas during WW2 as a merchant seaman trying to get supplies to the beleaguered Russians. He was a bit like Del Boy's grandad in that sense, even looked like him a bit. Just thought I'd share that titbit with you!
Cheers for the vote btw but I gotta agree with you, I think Tombob's deservingly run away with it this week! ;-)
Just for the record, I dont look like any of DelBoys relatives ( not since I shaved the beard anyway)
And "brave" is not in my vocabulary. "Run away very fast" is.
It doesnt actually take a heavy sea to produce these walls of spray at the bow, but it can look quite spectacular. Quite difficult to photograph esp. from another moving vessel. This is the first that looked any good, after countless other attempts. Thanks for looking.
