BOATS and BOATING.
Although I live on the beautiful but dangerous Morecambe Bay most of my boat pictures have been taken elsewhere.
I have liked boats all my life, owned a self built dinghy and then a Dell Quay Dory sport both of which we used for fishing in the bay and wherever we fancied towing it too.
I suppose it stems from my father who had quite a spell working on the Morecambe 'nobby' as
the Bay's shrimp boats were known as. Sadly there are only a couple left working commercially.
There is a harbour at Heysham where I live.
