Hi there, yes I am still here, visiting from time to time. do not seem to have received this one on my blog, love it - where did you find this one ? Karen.
Hello Karen.I've only just put this post up - which is probably why your list hasn't registered it yet.It's on a little beach on the Weymouth side of Portland Harbour in Dorset.All the way along that stretch of coast (about half a mile?)there are the remains of metal poles in pairs. They must have supported notices at some point. One day, I'll find out whether this had to do with a causeway, a railway, a warning of mines in the Second World War or landing rights.Glad you visit!Lucy
Sort of appropriate:“Authors, like coins, grow dear as they grow old:It is the rust we value, not the gold.” Alexander PopeI love trying to interpret old remains like this.
A metal post, you said. It looked almost like a tree with the roots out to the side. Must be the color of the sand. Very interesting photo.
Hermes - I'm catching up with some comments. About your quote (Authors like coins, grow dear as they grow old) . . . do you think some of us might have a vested interest in encouraging that viewpoint?Lucy
Hello Mary Delle.Sorry to take so long to reply to your remark about the metal post. I get side-tracked . . . then I get left beind. Apologies.Things take on a different aspect when their context is removed. The remains of the post is only about a foot high - certainly not tree-sized and it is set in a huge piece of concrete. The ones which are less eroded must be about fifteen feet. (I'm not very good at judging sizes but that will give you the general idea.)Lucy
Absolutely Lucy - and why not!
