A typical boating scene in Mumbles last week.

Mumbles is a seaside resort just west of Swansea just before the Gower starts.

Smiles . . I often feel this is a good way to convey the presence of boats without getting lost in their detail !

You just can´t beat a scene like this,I can hear the ropes and pulleys clanging against the masts from here !!

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: It was a bit. The scene below the masts was rather disappointing thougth as all boats had their blue coverings on.
