Watchet

 Watchet is one of our favourite  coastal towns to visit and being just 15 miles away is one of the closest.  The town itself is over 1000 years old with the harbour being used for trade over many centuries. Now it is a pleasure marina.


I took the opportunity to try out my new camera and had lots of fun 'zooming' around!




I have to say the zoom is pretty amazing! In the middle of this picture on the horizon there is an island - Steep Holm.


Here is Steep Holm taken from the same spot on the harbour wall with my zoom


and the Welsh coast


and the new reactor at Hinkley Point.


Note the blue sky in the above pictures - this was the view looking in to Watchet



Fortunately the rain took it's time in arriving.

The macro also works well



and you can't beat a bit of rust!



Yankee Jack (the statue lol) keeps an eye on the marina.


There are several gift shops in Watchet, all well stocked with quality local crafts and we came away with a few Christmas presents - we could be back again soon!

  4. It sounds as if you enjoyed a wonderful day catching all the sights of Watchet with your new camera, Lin. I'm with you re the rust; I'm rather partial to it myself

  10. How clever to be sewing a pouch. I wish I could do that. Meanwhile, great photos especially the last one. And do you mind saying what kind of camera you got that can do macro as well?
