Drainage basins



The countryside approaching the seaside has many drainage basins. When the rivers and the canals in the inland get too full and the water doesn't flow quick enough into the sea, the damns are opened and the basins get filled with the water in excess, permitting the small towns not to get underwater.

Sounds like a good idea to me!

I was here. I did look at your picture(s) and I did read what you wrote about them. I could say how great you are and how beautiful your work is but alas I would soon run out of things to say on the next blog I visited, so I just left this to prove I stopped and said a few words; and I am not a lurker or a visitor, but I am a commentator.
