It’s really unfortunate, that a trip down to the waterfront at low tide reveals this unfortunate sight. Of course it disappears when the tide comes back up. I reported one trolley to Street scene – they told me that anything on the seaward side of the Haslar Marina Pier Wall is the responsibility of QHM, and it appears that they are not a large priority – kind of understandable really. As annoying as it is, they aren’t in the way of anything.
The frustration from my point of view, is that whenever I write about the waterfront, or anything come to that, you get a picture that is stilted, because that is how I write. I’ve just finished reading the latest issue of Country Walking. Eighty odd pages of descriptive, well written, vivid, entertaining prose. Words that flowed, and built a picture that gave you a feeling for the subject. The trouble for me, is that I know the words, but it seems my brain doesn’t think shall we say descriptively without some effort on my part. Is it flowery words or something else?
