They must be doing well with the fund raising!

They certainly do. Notice the new lifeboat station is 10's of yards inland. We are waiting to see a launch...…….

*Actually an inshore lifeboat, not one of the biggies*…….

I haven't been there for a good while, being put off by the long line of camper vans that had taken over the sea front parking.

Are they still there, will they return when the better weather comes I wonder.

Nice shot BTW.

I like the pano format, Mark. It fits the subject nicely.

Presently I'm at Hastings far from home on Sandra's lappy.

Tonight there's some kind of festival in Hastings, maybe good for a few street shots.

I knew cars were getting bigger but I guess that must apply to lifeboats too. Looks like the new one will have wings and fly out of the shed like Thunderbird 2 to get over the rocks.
As Mark said the pano format suits the scene and shows off the changes nicely, well observed.
