13: Architecture: Homeward Bound

This was my view as the car ferry left Fishbourne on the Isle of Wight this morning with me and my duct taped car on board! I do love a port. And I love watching as it moves further and further away and the sea comes between you. Not pretty structures but something about them I really like.

In answer to your questions yesterday, yes, we are considering moving to the island.
And yes, thanks to duct tape and prayer, I made it all the way home today in torrential rain. That was actually helpful. I wanted to drive slower because of the issue with my faulty boot latch, particularly in the conditions of strong winds and heavy rain, and other people drove slower too because of the conditions, making it far less dangerous on the motorways for me to be a slight slowcoach!

My friend sent me a message, saying she had prayed an angel would sit on the boot of my car and stop it opening! Brilliant image :) Glad and relieved to be safely home.
Isn’t duct tape a wonderful thing! Glad you got safely back.

So pleased you are safely home! I love it when a ship is leaving port! Always exciting even if it’s just a short journey!

Duct tape & baling string...a farmers best friend! You are a trouper & although I have never been anywhere near the Isle of White I believe it’s a beautiful place. Plenty of sailing ops for the teenager too!

Very nice.

Fav. Been there. I therefore enjoyed this photo more.

A lovely shot, but I always prefer arriving into a port rather than leaving. I've always wanted to holiday in the Isle of Wight. At one point I even bought the OS explorer map and a walking guide, but I still haven't made the trip.
