ABC Wednesday...................

.......This week we have reached the letter Q



Q is for Quay


I took this picture some years ago on the quayside of a tiny little


harbour near St Just in Roseland in Cornwall.


In fact it was hardly a harbour, just a small river inlet used by a few locals.


When I took the photo the tide was out so there was just a


muddy patch where the watershould have been!


So no pictureseque views of the river but


I just couldn't resist capturing all the bright colours of the buoys!

ABC Wednesday is hosted by Mrs. Nesbit.

To take part or see other participants visit

Great choice for Q and the colors are a knockout. I love the way you used the confusion of things on the dock to your advantage. My choice was nautical as well.

I chose to use nearby Quadra Island for Q. It is a fun vacation destination that you can see by clicking here. – Margy

I considered a quayside Q but went with some queens - just been watching Sky News - the giant screen in Piccadilly Gardens broke down and thousands of disgruntled fans are causing mayhem - I saw a glimpse of someone on the back of QV's statue

Very nice choice for the letter Q:)

That's lovely - though it took me a while to see the Q connection! Cornwall is almost as nice as Wales.
