Life in Colour

To find out more about this year’s photo challenge here on Travel Words, please read this post.

The Hastings Lifeboat Station is located at The Stade in Hastings Old Town – right next to the fishing fleet berths on the working beach. The new boathouse was built in 1995 to safely accommodate the Mersey class and D class lifeboats, along with tractor, bobcat and carriages. The station was also the first designated visitor centre for the RNLI, and now attracts over 60,000 visitors each year.

Do you Have any  blue Buildings?

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Nice shot! Don’t they do a great job? An 18 year old boy lost his life off the coast of Hartlepool last week. Victim of the heatwave? His body was just found. So very sad!

      1. Oh, lots! I’ve chosen quite a few. But given the challenge I’ve set myself, it works better to do these at the very end, with bits and pieces from everywhere.

  2. I love the station’s reflection in the rain puddle.

    Stretching the knowledge of water cycle, maybe some rain drops returned, decades later, to visit an old friend, the Lifeboat Station 🙂

        1. No, I spotted the frame of it that day I met my friends from London, so looked it up when I got home. I get a Lifeboat magazine a few times a year, and I expect there will be something about it in there. x

  3. That shade is quite imposing on a building. I don’t think I have any, certainly none this blue, but I’ll take a look.
