There is a car there!

 

Someone had driven a range Rover onto the mudflats at Hightown and then left it there to the mercies of the tides and weather.

A detail from yesterday's picture.

I guess they couldn't read, Les. I sure hope it's not a case of vandalism? It's actually kinda of sad....
Les Auld: Thanks Ginnie, I still can't work out how they managed to get it across the river.

Didn't read the sign, my oh my. I have seen the result of a case on our coast where a fisherman parked his Landrover next to the sea, didn't watch the tides, got enclosed and finally overrun.

Excelent picture - just love the splashes of orange on the mudflats.
Les Auld: Thanks Louis, just goes to show thw sea can be dangerous to car drivers as well.
'What a plonker' comes to mind.
Les Auld: Amongst other thoughts David, appreciate the comment

Good way to get rid of gas guzzlers and has the dual positive of creating subjects to photograph. richard.
Les Auld: Always ready to see the alternative viewpoint, thanks Richard.
