Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I only knew Plymouth Hoe as being the place that Captain Drake dreamt about as he slept in his hammock, from a song we learned at school. It was so pleasing to find that Plymouth had so much more to offer.

My photograph, this morning, shows part of the Naval Memorial on Plymouth Hoe. Behind it can be seen Plymouth's Eye, a large ferris wheel.

I chose to include only part of the memorial for better visual impact.

The memorial was erected to commemorate all those from the Royal Navy who lost their lives during the First World War and had no known grave.Sailors from some Australia and South Africa were also commemorated.

It was later extended to include those from the Royal Navy and other Commonwealth Countries who died during the Second World War.

After the most horrendous winds and rain, the U.K. is having a small respite. Let's hope it lasts!

I wish you all a peaceful and happy day, Bev :-)
