Rye Harbour

Rye Harbour is about two hundred years old - it's about two miles downstream from Rye. It grew up as the sea retreated from the medieval port.

It's a busy yachting centre, with a fishing fleet and some commercial shipping - the surrounding area is a nature reserve.

The sea is still moving...moving...moving... - like Dungeness, Rye harbour has the feeling of being at the end of the world.

I was rather taken by two locals - this lady enjoying the sun on her balcony...

...and this intent little turnstone.
