"Weymouth Harbour II"

"Ferry me across the water, do boatman do!
If you've a penny in your pocket, I'll ferry you!"

A watercolour painted from a photograph, to show the
harbourside in Weymouth  about twenty or thirty years ago.
There are many more yachts in the marina these days, 
but there is still a working fishing harbour and it is still very pretty.
You will find a few antique shops these days along the quay, but 
you will also find some good fish and chip shops
selling freshly caught fish - wonderful!

 You can also still get a ferryman to take you from one side
of the harbour to the other  in his small rowing boat, but it 
will cost more than the old penny
you would have paid sixty years ago!
