Roa Island lifeboat station

 this is the 5th Roa Island lifeboat station. The first was built in 1864 and this one was opened in 2001. The pier is where the Piel Island ferry (12 passengers max) arrives and departs. Be careful in high winds – on our last visit a resident told us that she was blown off!

12 passengers max? – erm that’s just on the starboard side 😉
“only Kidding” of course

Very pleasing lines, and I love the tone.
