I more interested in what is powering the skip over to the right  :P , and I bet he used the stenna stair lift inside to launch the cruise liner, at least he wont have to find a secluded lake with rights of use issues.

Help them in what way, There is no evidence of anyone actually in trouble there, What would they be able to do if there were.  It all looks pretty calm.. 

Great looking ship..

Any Members from the Wallasey and or New Brighton or Hoylake Clubs on here today, ?..  I assume your clubs got a battering..

<:(  A couple of the lads were in a 4 x 4 near our lake , & did a video . . .
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1Hqj1dKwDk&feature=youtu.be
The lake is straight down this road , to the left ,the water is coming over the main sea defence & breeching the new secondary wall as well , the mini golf course is on the left . . .
real devastation . . .

this is salt water and in everyone rolls brine

cars must suffer

what state the car will be on the dike

nobody here would pass the time watching, we'd all secure factories and houses.

It surprises me a lot {:-{

The area on the video Most houses as far as I am aware hopefully escaped the water, Unfortunately I would imagine some of the shops near the sea front did not escape so well, The Morrisons which keeps getting played on the news was built on the same area as the open water Pool which was damaged nearly 20 years ago (maybe more) They were advised Not to build there but did so anyway..

Gazou
if you did some reaserch in to the photo. You will find that it is Model wonder land in Hamburg Germany. A team of 9 had been work to stop the build flooding . They lost the battel and the celler flood. so they took a bit of time out to sail on of teh model from the muesum.

Yes , Immediately behind our video , the ground rises VERY steeply , what your looking at is mostly reclaimed land, long long ago . . .
And GAZOU it is an ENGLISH passtime to watch NATURE at work at any opportunity , agree with you about driving a car in that stuff , very bad , but . . . WHEN NATURE SPEAKS WE LISTEN . . .

I understand what Gazou is saying, but I think in this case in the area's effected it was being dealt with..  Now the Fact that I am a Yank , Living in Britain with a French Background I think I cover most bases, I find this weather fascinating and to would have been out there watching (not on the edge mind you), It is Mother Nature at her best saying " Bring it on ", if I want it Back I will Have it....

Correct John,
The photograph (and German text) were released by the plastic model company Revell, on their facebook group pages.

Naturally I noticed the glass arrow5 in a number of posts ago :-))

Personally I feel that our member GAZOU is being taken to task........& without cause  >>:-(
Makes me think of that old Biblical note   ...."he who lives in a sh*it heap with glass walls should throw the first brick to remove the stench"

Is it possible that the skip is floating in the dock and the line of bollards marks the edge of the quay? This could be an old dock warehouse.

Well forums are mostly supposed to be fun

And I like our Gazou ... Not always exactly sure what Gazou means sometimes ... But his English is fifty times better than my French. That French footballer got away with talking about seagulls - we all thought 'Well he's French' and that was expected.

So, vive la différence!
