The waterfront is one of the highlights of the town. It’s always be a pleasure to walk along the promenade. There are things to see. Memories to be invoked. Memories such the monument in the foreground of the picture. This is the monument to HMS Affray a submarine that was lost in 1951, with 75 men on board. The men are listed on the monument. Every time I walk past the monument, I pause to think of them.
One of the pleasures of walking along the path is the opportunity to say hello to people. Of course the opportunity for doing that has decreased of late. It’s sad, but there you go. In the past, I would be walking along using my radio and people would stop me and ask me what I am doing. I’m always pleased to explain about being a licensed radio ham, and being on the #Breakfastclub. (I’ll need to explain that eventually). I also have what has been referred to as my “Gadget Stick”. Which, depending on the time of year, many be either a photography monopod or a tripod. I’m sure I’ve talked of this before.
It’s good to talk to people, I enjoy doing it.
