Some photos from Alderney

On this happy and cheerful morn, I thought you might be interested in some photos of the harbour wall. It is 36ft. high and sometimes the waves break over it up to 4 times it's height.
The first shows just the wall (nearly .75mile long).
The second is taken from the same spot a few seconds later.
And the third is taken form a completely diferent angle showing what the lifeboat has to put up with.

When I was a kid, I got chased along that breakwater by one of your killer bumblebees.

Stunning place - looks a bit like my harbour sometimes.

No wonder RIBs are so popular in the CI - The Swinge isn't much fun in a yacht!!!

It was just that a friend was telling me today that the Fort can be hired to stay at and lo and behold you put a picture on RIBNET.

Do you know where the nearest place is to moor a RIB ?
