Walk : Esplanade to the Tunnel


The Liberation Station (ugh!) area in the evening...







.. seems like many years since this was the west-bound route from the tunnel to the Esplanade...





.. looking back, with the bottom of Castle Street in the distance.
Look carefully and there's a sculpture of...





"Jersey Girl" (by artist Rowan Gillespie) dangling above...








.. closer.







And, at night...







.. it's lit in blue from below.

Here's someone else's video of the unveiling, with good old Sadie singing...




Over the multi-lane highway then...







.. to admire the floating gin palaces at high tide...






.. closer.







A high enough tide to raise the old ferry ramp up high.







Towards the Needle.







The marina again...







.. and again.






In the other direction there's not a lot you'd recognise if you left the island in the 80s or before.







The Old Harbour and Commercial Bldgs may look more familiar though.





.. over the water to the yacht club.





The infamous Steam Clock.






The Tunnel. People have complained recently about the lack of lights inside, and it does appear to be very randomly lit!

Another set of invocative, normal pics! You manage to capture everyday scenes which others forget. Just great! Keep it up C and long may you reign! A.
