The Wyre Channel

click photo to enlarge
The Wyre Channel snakes out to sea, marking the course of the River Wyre as it flows into Morecambe Bay. It is the deep water route taken by the ferries as they enter the port of Fleetwood, Lancashire. Here, a few holiday-makers walk along its banks, overshadowed by a dramatic sky recently cleared of rain, and the distant Cumbrian Mountains.

"The sea washes all man's ills away."
Euripides (484?-406B.C.), Greek dramatist
