On the road along the coast to Fishnish on the Isle of Mull, my “Stop the car, please!” worked once again.
This was no harbour, just some old fishing boats hauled up on the shore to make more of the view on a fine day.

This week’s photo challenge is to show something that surprised or delighted me on the road taken.
