A Mason image to begin this weeks postings. Specifically, a maritime scene, with what seems a familiar headland in the background(?) The many boats and fishing vessels grounded during low tide gives the men a chance to carry out checks and repairs. The breakwater seems more natural stone than a man made construction. Are we looking at a natural harbour?

Niall McAuley was quickest on the draw here, identifying this as Port Erin and Bradda Head on the Isle of Man....
