Nice Photos of Nice Boats

My dictionary’s primary definition of ‘nice’ is, ‘giving pleasure or satisfaction’.

Back in the early nineteen-fifties when I was a pupil at Huish’s Grammar School, Taunton, I was taught by my English teacher never to use the adjective ‘nice’, because it was nebulous. The word contributed little by way of definition, since it could be applied to almost anything, while adding little to how one understands the object, feeling or emotion being described by the adjective. Nevertheless I shall use the word ‘nice’ twice in the title of today’s Blog to convey to the reader my pleasure in looking at these photographs. I hope you will enjoy them too.
