With all the flat sands and mud flats on that part of the coast, I hope they also have a RNLI Hovercraft for the inshore work.
But it also shows just how hard these unpaid crews have to work ….and that is before they have to venture onto the seas. Just hope folk do dig deep into their pockets to help support the teams.
Couldn’t agree more David, like MR they are unbelievable people doing great things for ordinary folk.
At the RNLI station in South Queensferry they have a small shop which sell a variety of goods and I always buy something and give a donation when I am up there. They are always out in the water as the Forth Road Bridge is near there and people do jump off the bridge. Also people keep getting stranded on the Island of Crammond and have to be rescued 😦
Hiya, sad that people feel they have no hope and feel they have to do something so drastic as jump from anything. The things the Volunteers must see must be horrendous.
wow! that’s some serious mudflat! I can understand how people might get stranded, although it’s probably wise to check and double check what the tides are up to before heading out!
theirs always people getting stranded around our shores unfortunately 🙂 as you mention lack of planning plays a huge part.
Very nice! I like the bottom photo particularly – it puts the essentially frail human presence into an effective perspective. Thanks for more great pics!.
Thanks Claire 🙂
Nice series of fotos so we could see how it is done. Thanks
Hello Waldo ..trust you are well :-).. glad you like the post 🙂
Great subject – you either do your research and get yourself in the right place at the right time, or you do as we should all do, and keep your camera with you all the time. Or, you are just amazingly lucky with your timing 🙂
Whatever, keep doing it, ‘cos it works 🙂
Thanks Paul, I,d like to take all the credit but my personal assistant/partner does tonnes of research… 🙂 I,d be lost without her…but don’t say anything 🙂
Lips are sealed :-X
Great post .. saw the RNLI when I was over recently. By curious coincidence had posted twice about Hoylake myself last week.
