Chatham Marina

Hi folks,

after my walk I strolled across the road bridge to have a look at the boats.

My car was parked behind the white marque. This is a Cassoon according to that Trevor, it's a lifting bridge with a lock to retain the water when it is closed.

A view from the bridge across to the new houses on St Mary's Island.

One working boat.

One Luxury boat, still some money in the Medway Towns.

Whats this a reflection off??

You guessed it, those towers again.

Autumn is coming, first time I have seen leaves on the water.

Going fishing.

Lock gates all hydraulically operated all the chap in the building has to do is press some buttons to let the boats out of the Marina into the river.

Last shot down the river.

Well I hope you enjoyed my little jaunt around the Marina, thanks for looking.

nite nite, Luv Mike XX
