CLOSED Letters by the water: all wet

view profile

Eva the Weaver says:

Letters by the Water: swimmingpool letters, letters from bathing places, letters from ships and boats... they should have some relation with water. If the connection isn't obvious from the photo, please put an explanation in the description text. A context shot in this discussion thread mauy also be a good idea.

A is for the Ocean - a watery icon.
What will B?

Just such a pity my favourite J is already in the pool! Not only is it from an oyster bar, you can see the sea in the background!

Hmm. A high-pressure was is also water, right? I posted the C from Conrad's tank truck, it's with some of the washing gear in the frame, as well. So if thats OK: Dd.

D on the side of the esplanade wall. On the other side of that wall is the sea. In fact there's also some frost or ice (frozen water) at the top of the wall visible in the photo.

Thanks for trying, Aristide - and I just love to hear the stories of others who do this sort of thing… I always chase both numbers and letters, and often some tricky guessing locality, AND other themes like lions and fountains… so I usually catch at least something. But very often not the most urgently needed stuff.
