Quality shot Roger, I was trying to find out more about this Mariner but the new Microsoft Edge blocks the reference due to Ipernity not being secure. Also any problems posting to HFF Group?
HFF and a good weekend for you both.

Many thanks Maurice, HFF has disappeared from my group list and I notice no images have been posted in the group. I use Firefox as Edge is really unhelpful at times.

Wonderful light. You've done the statue proud and the sculptor has done the poem proud. I've still got all my school poetry books so I'm going to read it again. I remember all the well known quotations but I don't think I appreciated the poem properly when I was young. Too literal a mind maybe.

Thank you Jean, the light was just before the arrival of a storm and the overcast weather that we have suffered ever since, another statue by the same sculptor sits a few yards along the promenade. www.lovewatchet.co.uk/yankee-jack-2/m

Roger (Grisly) club has replied to ©UdoSm club
Thank you for the nice comments Udo,, In his right hand he holds the dead albatross which is also hung around his neck, I have included a few lines from the poem,
Ah! wel-a-day! what evil looks
Had I from old and young!
Instead of the cross, the albatross
About my neck was hung.
