Photos of the Week: Maryport

We've just been to the Lake District for the week and whilst we were there we took a trip to Maryport.  The Cumbrian coastline doesn't seem to be a major tourist destination unlike the Lake District itself.  This is in part is due to how long it takes to get to the coast on the A roads and there is no major resort like Blackpool.  I somehow think Sellafield might have something to do with that. 

Maryport was our final destination for the day.  It is a sleepy seaside town and it was overcast that day so I couldn't take any pictures of the Solway Firth.  Instead I took some photos of the Marina and town centre.  As much as I prefer taking pictures on a clear, blue sky day, sometimes cloudy days can add real atmospherics to a picture. Here are some examples of what I found.
