A Jetty for the Millennium

One joyous effects of the year 2000 was communities across the country created something to commemorate this point in time with an object. In the seaside village of Seascale they reinstated the former wooden jetty
and created the Millennium Jetty, a simple object but one that is enjoyed to the full.  This day was
the end of August bank holiday, nearly time to go back to school and, as it turned out. the last week of true summer.  For all but the year round hardy types this may have been when the water sports equipment was put away after a fun filled summer, unless of course jetting off to warmer climes.

One of my favorite moments was in 1995, being on a jetty in Galveston, Texas at 5 a.m.

I wish I could be on that jetty once! But then I visit so many blogs where I enjoy seeing all those wonderful places, and imagine what it will be like being there in reality!
Have a great week!

Interesting photos!
Now why didn't I think of 'J is for Jetty' since my post has a jetty in it.
Happy Wednesday!
