Ajaccio Corsica

Ajaccio Corsica

FOR SALE - Ajaccio is located on the west coast of the island of Corsica, 210 nautical miles (390 km) southeast of Marseille. The commune occupies a sheltered position at the foot of wooded hills on the northern shore of the Gulf of Ajaccio between Gravona and the pointe de la Parata and includes the îles Sanguinaires (Bloody Islands). The harbour lies to the east of the original citadel below a hill overlooking a peninsula which protects the harbour in the south where the Quai de la Citadelle and the Jettée de la Citadelle are. The modern city not only encloses the entire harbour but takes up the better part of the Gulf of Ajaccio and in suburban form extends for some miles up the valley of the Gravona River. The flow from that river is nearly entirely consumed as the city's water supply. Many beaches and coves border its territory and the terrain is particularly rugged in the west where the highest point is 790 m (2,592 ft).

 
Ardnamurchan  - Red Sky

Ardnamurchan - Red Sky

SOLD - Located near the port of Oban, Ardnamurchan strictly speaking covers only the peninsula beyond the villages of Salen (in the south) and Acharacle (in the north), but nowadays the term is used much more generally to include the neighbouring districts of Sunart, Ardgour, Morvern, and even Moidart (which was part of the former county of Inverness-shire). The whole north western corner of Ardnamurchan contains a complex of volcanic structures. Broadly, this area is the underground structures of a 55 million-year-old volcanic complex (relatively small areas of lavas that were erupted onto the surface are found in some parts of the peninsula). The rocky outcrops are depicted here silhouetted against the hight cirrus clouds which remain illumited with red light a short while after the sun has set.

 
Barging on the Kennet - Avon Canal

Barging on the Kennet - Avon Canal

FOR SALE - The Kennet and Avon Canal is a waterway in southern England with an overall length of 87 miles made up of two lengths of navigable river linked by a canal. The name is commonly used to refer to the entire length of the navigation rather than solely to the central canal section. From Bristol to Bath the waterway follows the natural course of the River Avon before the canal links it to the River Kennet at Newbury, and from there to Reading on the River Thames. In all, the waterway incorporates 105 locks. The two river stretches were made navigable in the early 18th century, and the 57-mile canal section was constructed between 1794 and 1810. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the canal gradually fell into disuse after the opening of the Great Western Railway. In the latter half of the 20th century the canal was restored in stages, largely by volunteers. After decades of dereliction and much restoration work, it was fully reopened in 1990. The Kennet and Avon Canal has been developed as a popular heritage tourism destination for boating, canoeing, fishing, walking and cycling, and is also important for wildlife conservation. This is an imaginary scene but so typical of the canal.

Bembridge Harbour (1)

Bembridge Harbour (1)

SOLD - Impressionistic view of Bembridge Harbour. Located at the Eastern end of the Isle of Wight, historical references to the area now referred to as Bembridge Harbour go back to before Roman times. The Harbour was previously known as Brading Haven and, as the names suggests, extended as far west as Brading before the Embankment was constructed in 1880. Throughout its history the area has offered sheltered waters to all types of mariner. It is now used as sheltered mooring for small yachts and latterly has a yacht marina at the western end of the harbour.

 
Bembridge Harbour (2)

Bembridge Harbour (2)

FOR SALE - Looking along Redwing Quay at low tide towards Bembridge Sailing Club showing a line of Redwings on their moorings. The Redwing is a traditional one-design clinker-built14 ft racing dinghy sailed by a crew of two. The rig is a straight forward bermudan sloop without spinnaker but with one trapeze for the crew. Although the class is very small there are a few fleets of Redwings dotted around the UK which are raced enthusiastically, often all year round. The Redwing is light & fast for a clinker dinghy but is very durable and long-lived. Most of those built are still sailing, including No.1, built in 1939.

 
Bembridge Harbour (3)

Bembridge Harbour (3)

SOLD - Looking across Bembridge Harbour towards Redwing Quay and Bembridge Sailing Club. The club was founded in 1886 and it’s current membership is approximately 1,300. Although there is activity throughout the year, it is concentrated over the holiday periods, and July & August as the majority of members live on the mainland. YBoat designer Charles Ernest Nicholson's first design of note was the Redwing class. The Bembridge sailing club met in October 1896 to agree the need for a shallow draughted yacht - to allow for the shoal waters of Bembridge Harbour - which could be sailed single-handed, to replace the expensive half racers. Nicholson designed the yacht in ten days, and by 1898 the fleet consisted of 16 boats.

 
Blacksmith's Forge

Blacksmith's Forge

FOR SALE - Nowadays blacksmiths produce objects such as gates, grilles, railings, light fixtures, horse shoes, furniture, sculpture etc, but once crafted agricultural implements, cooking utensils and weapons, and wheras they once were commonplace, only a few remain today.

The origin of "smith" is debated, it may come from the old English word "smythe" meaning "to strike" or it may have originated from the Proto-German "smithaz" meaning "skilled worker.

Boudicca at Valletta

Boudicca at Valletta

FOR SALE- Valletta is the capital of Maltaand is located in the central-eastern portion of the island of Malta. Valletta contains buildings from the 16th century onwards, built during the rule of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, also known as Knights Hospitaller. The city is essentially Baroque in character, with elements of Mannerist, Neo-Classical and Modern architecture in selected areas, though World War II left major scars on the city. The city is named after Jean Parisot de la Valette, who succeeded in defending the island from an Ottoman invasion in 1565. The official name given by the Order of Saint John was Humilissima Civitas Valletta — The Most Humble City of Valletta, or Città Umilissima in Italian. The bastions, curtains and ravelins along with the beauty of its Baroque palaces, gardens and churches, led the ruling houses of Europe to give the city its nickname Superbissima — 'Most Proud'. -- Boudicca is a ship with an illustrious lineage. It began life as Royal Viking Sky, one of the legendary "white ships" owned by Royal Viking Line. After a varied career operating for NCL, Princess Cruises and Star Cruises (among other lines), Boudicca has found an appropriate berth with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, which already operates its sister ship, the former Royal Viking Star, as the popular Black Watch. Boudicca was "stretched" in the early 80's with the addition of a 91-foot midsection, and while the ship retains a classic profile, it has gained a considerable amount of open-air sunbathing space on the top deck. Boudicca was acquired by Fred. Olsen in 2005, and in 2006, it underwent a refit to bring it in line with the fleet's understated, old-world style.

It provides beautiful coastal walks and a large wild bird sanctuary on the estuary.Budleigh also lies on the South West Coast Path, with clifftop routes eastwards to Sidmouth and westwards to Exmouth. The pebble beach and cliffs are part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site, although this is an arrangement of geographical convenience, rather than being correct in terms of geological time, as much of the geology is Triassic, represented by bunter sandstone (Budleigh Salterton pebble beds).

 
Calbourne Mill stream

Calbourne Mill stream

FOR SALE- The name Calbourne is derived from the stream rising on the downs above the village and running through Newbridge and Shalfleet into the Solent at Newtown. The village was originally known as Cawelburn. The name is said to arise from cawel being the old name for kale and burn meaning stream. There were three mills recorded around Calbourne in the Domesday Book of 1086. Particular reference to Upper Calbourne Mill appears in 1299, with a detailed record of ownership from the 16th century. Flour may therefore have been milled on the Upper Calbourne site for over 1000 years. The mill is now a working museum, demonstrating the stone mill in operation during the summer months and still producing stoneground flour.

Capt Edward Smith (Titanic)

Capt Edward Smith (Titanic)

SOLD - Captain Edward Smith of the Titanic. The first four days of the voyage passed without incident, but shortly after 11:40 pm on 14 April Smith emerged from his cabin to be told by First Officer William Murdoch that the ship had just collided with an iceberg. It was soon apparent that the ship was mortally damaged. As the scale of the impending disaster dawned on Smith, it appears that he became paralyzed by indecision. He did not issue a general order for evacuation, gave contradictory orders, and failed to inform senior officers of the ship's perilous condition (an hour after the collision. Smith perished that night along with around 1,500 others, but his exact fate is unknown and his body was never recovered. Reports on his fate conflict each other. Some sources claim Smith quietly wandered off to drown in the ship's flooded wheelhouse.

 
Cefalu

Cefalu

FOR SALE - Cefalù is a city and comune in the Province of Palermo, located on the northern coast of Sicily, Italy on the Tyrrhenian Sea about 70 kilometres east of the provincial capital and 185 kilometres (115 mi) west of Messina. The town, with its population of just under 14,000, is one of the major tourist attractions in the region. Despite its size, every year it attracts millions of tourists from all parts of Sicily and also, from all over Italy and Europe. In summer the population can triple, making the main streets and major roads in the country crowded. There is then a youthful atmosphere and a lively nightlife. During the Byzantine domination the settlement was moved from the plain to the current spur, although the old town was never entirely abandoned. In 858, after a long siege, it was conquered by the Arabs, and rechristened Gafludi. For the following centuries it was part of the Emirate of Sicily. In 1063 the Normans captured it and in 1131, Roger II, king of Sicily, transferred it from its almost inaccessible position to one at the foot of the rock, where there was a small but excellent harbour, and began construction of the present cathedral. Between the 13th century and 1451 it was under different feudal families, and then it became a possession of the Bishops of Cefalù.
