Brancaster Staithe 7/7

We all do it on the coast when we come across these lines of an old breakwater, this is one of several at Brancaster Staithe I took shots of, although there doesn't seem much of it left these days.

Yes...of course...it evokes fantasies of sea-faring in past romantic eras, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed it could well be old timbers from a sucken wreck.

Maybe it has been superseded by something else?
Brian Walbey: There are quite a lot liek this along the beach, I guess the tides have brought so much sand in over the years they are maily covered up.

You should come to the Dutch North-Sea coast where lots of poles are breaking the water.
Brian Walbey: I guess tides bring sand in and it slowly creeps up the poles.
They do look rather past their best Brian

I go to a few beaches with these same things, usually old wharves here.
Brian Walbey: These were breakwaters but I guess over the years the sand has increased in depth and more or less submerged the bits still not rotted away.

A very pleasing scene; I like the Z shape with the breaking waves, the line of the grin and then the remains of the waves again.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan.

Refreshing view.
Brian Walbey: Also a refreshing breeze which the camera doesn't pick up smile
