Spurn

11 Nov

Many moons ago I posted a picture of this lightship from the other side of the dock. Here it is again a bit closer.

The ship helped mariners enter the Humber for nearly fifty years until it was decommissioned and turned into a museum by the council. If you’re thinking of visiting you will have to wait till March and go on a weekend on the other hand it is free like all our museums and art galleries. There are a few links to the ship the best in my opinion are here and here.

Blue water and blue sky; it’s like a child’s painting.

The strange looking ship was the lightship at Spurn point, the entrance to the Humber. The background church is Holy Trinity and is in the centre of the “Old Town”, the original mediaeval part of the city. We do have cloudy days in Hull.
