It hasnt all gone according to plan

http://www.worthingherald.co.uk/news/rampion-digger-underwater-1-7899933

Odd looking thing, found itself outside its design parameters.

Dont bother with the video. The still shows as much as the video but without adverts and camera shutter clicking.

Love the fact that that stranded digger ended up being something of a tourist attraction with the nickname "Moby Dig"!!

Not much to see, but cabling coming ashore near Lancing.




Shot above from Worthing. Amazing to think this is more than 7 miles out to sea. Shame some think if it as an eyesore. They obviously could not see the Brighton skyline.

Landfall below. No sign of the ill fated Mobey Dig but still a couple of construction vehicles indicating it's still work in progress.

Amazing really to think that in the time it's taken for this wind farm to be approved and built, the turbines have almost tripled in size/output.
