ABC Wednesday - Yacht

Yo ho ho and avast me hearties I see a yacht mast behind the yellow centred pansies. 
it be the Badger, its  yard painted yellow, but its not setting sail, the tide is out on the Duddon Estuary.
No problem when you have a ladder.  This is the macro tidal estuary of Ravenglass, with a tidal range of over 7 metres (23 feet) on spring tides and largely empties of water at low tide.  So why not tootle over in a van?   But the best way to see a yacht is
under full sail. This is St Malo harbour late morning, the sun shining, and a warm breeze. If all goes well I will be arriving here in the early morning on Saturday for a few weeks in France. Hope to see you all in the next round of ABC Wednesday.

Yomp over to ABC Wednesday to see more words starting with Y

Yacht! Why didn't I think of that?! Love the shot that looks like it's in the middle of pansies. :)

Yes, I'll yomp on over to St. Malo! Yomp-that's a new one for me! It's another one of those words that elicit a giggle when you hear it.

Fantastic photos. Particularly fond of the first one - it's surreal! Great post, to be sure...

Your photos are so beautiful! They are so typical of the UK, even if I have never been in that part of Great Britain. Yacht is a terrific word. In Dutch it is "jacht". I wonder who came first the English or the Dutch? ;)
Thanks for your visit and have a great day!
