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.

The ferry boats ply to the Isle of Man and Container ferries cross the Irish sea to Belfast but as it is adjacent to the Nuclear Power station

the access is only onto the north side and then only at the entrance to the harbour.
