nature gets everything in the end. Nature is time.
Lisl: It does, Rob. I wonder What this was like in its heyday
I love how you've captured the wave! Beautiful shot, Lisl!
Lisl: Thank you so much, Elizabeth

Like nails pushed into the sand
Lisl: Yes - hard to imagine how high these "nails" are

Oh dear!
Lisl: I must Google to see if I can find a picture of the original
J'adore! Breakwaters are like little soldiers trained to protect the shoreline
Lisl: This is actually the remains of a pier, Marie! It does look like a breakwater
The only town with an exclamation mark I believe. Perhaps it was added because the pier fell down
Lisl: I have often wondered why, Bill

Just the giant nails.
Lisl: Hard to believe, eh?

La nature a tout le temps devant elle et c'est ce qui fait sa force

Lisl: Des années et des années de martèlement par les vagues
I have never seen piles that look like nails.
Lisl: Most odd, but according to the pub (above them) blurb, this is what they are
I've just read up about this, it had a short life and was demolished in 1880, this is all that remains I believe.
Lisl: What a lot of effort for such a short time. But perhaps it was jerry-built

I would not have guessed that this was once a pier.
Lisl: It is hard to believe, Cherie

Some layers and a diagonal wave. Inherent beauty in nature and some man made detritus.
Lisl: Thank you, Louis. And I love the blue of the south-west coastal waters

You have captured the action of the waves brilliantly.
Lisl: Thank you so much, Anne
i like all the rocky and foamy textures, Lisl.
Lisl: It was a good frothy day, Ayush
