Anchor me

My friend Sarah at Art Expedition is hosting 30 Days, 30 Songs to share her music during June. I’m already a bit late to the party, but will join in when I can during the month.

This morning I walked down to Greenhithe wharf to watch the morning mist roll away up the harbour. The tide was full, and apart from a lone fisherman, the wharf was deserted.

I’d already chosen a song to post today, but (cliche though it may be) The MuttonbirdsAnchor Me seems much more appropriate.

Don McGlashan’s songs and voice have been on the soundtrack to my entire adult life; so I expect a few more will sneak into this project.

  1. Perfect combination of photo and song! I haven’t heard it before and had to hop over to YouTube and listen to the UK version because for some reason or other yours wouldn’t play for me (there’s always some trouble with rights in Germany which prevents us from listening to a lot of music – totally sucks!). Hope they’re not to different from each other?

  2. Lovely misty morning shot. Very reminiscent of a place called Mylor Harbour on the River Fal down here. Must revisit that place as it also has a lovely restaurant that we haven’t been to for a while.
    (Marilyn is so right!)
