CAUGHT IN THE LIGHT...
Been away for a week in the South Hams of South Devon, staying at Bigbury on Sea. It`s another of our favourite parts of the country and we enjoy the coast path walks, the beaches, the Devon villages and the weather, which blessed us with a week of unbroken sunshine with a bit of a breeze which made the walking even more enjoyable.
And this is a prime location for sunsets, like the one I captured in the photo above last Thursday evening. The ship which was caught in the light of a spectacular sunset is the Belgian Navy Patrol ship, Pollux, which was commissioned just a few months ago to join her sister ship, Castor (of course.)
I knew that Belgium produced excellent chocolate and good footballers but I didn`t know Belgium had a navy. But it seems they have and Pollux is reported to spend her time patrolling the waters off the Belgian coast and has recently `escorted` a Russian submarine off the Belgian patch. So what was it doing in Bigbury Bay last Thursday evening, I wonder? Well, I can but guess that it had heard about the South Devon sunsets and decided to check it out. Can`t blame them really, can you?
