Quack... it's the ducks



Into the water, from the beach at West Park...









.. churning up the green weed...






.. and off goes the Charming Nancy...







... over the bay...







.. and up onto dry land...








.. to the waiting passengers...






.. at Elizabeth Castle.

It's probably best not to moan about the politics of the thing! ;)

Hiya! I have been really enjoying all the latest photos - lovely to see some from different angles :)

Any chance of pix of the gardens @ Westmount? Some Beans have mentioned in threads recently!

The Original Puddle Ducks can still be seen in mothballs :-( at rear of the Jersey Dairy 5 Oaks
what a waste of engineering.......

Thanks Dottie, glad you liked the pic through the heat haze. The long grass is well away from the taxiways... it's the long distance distorting things.
What is the unfinished arrow on the right pointing to, out of interest?

I guess I could take a trip up to Westmount at some point... I'll add it to my ever increasing to-do list :)

cheers

That you found them working is an achievement in its self. Cultural bodies struggle to get funding, yet States money can be found to buy these failed machines bailing out Pure adventures.

All very CREEPY

You're very kind Dottie... thanks!
Nice to know what the lower "tower" (slopey windows) area is for (met observation) as I always wondered why there were 2 bits like that.
(pic here for people wondering what we're talking about!)
Cheers
