With all the boat reeled in, this town has turned to a sleepy town in winter.

<3 this house!

Firth of Forth

Forth Railway bridge

This bridge is in Scotland standing over the Firth of Forth. It is a massive structure which still excites tourists till this day. the amazing size of the bridge has it undergoing repainting every period of the year as every time it is fully painted once (takes four years!), the paint would have started to peel again.
