For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: iridescence.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: frost.
I took this in January 2018. The water is not frozen, but it is cold. And the color of the water looks like frost or ice….
For Norm2.0’s Thursday doors: The lovely carved door for the Wooden Boat Foundation in the early morning, lit by the sun.
The Wooden Boat Foundation is now part of the Northwest Maritime Center, but it was started in 1978 along with the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival. You can read the history here. I have been in town for 18 years and my father and my children and I did the family boat building one year. We built a “nuf” light plywood canoe in three days.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: orchestrate.
Photographs of my father’s boat, Sun Tui, returning to the water after a lot of repair work. I was looking for photos of my children playing violin or viola, but came across these. We had a team to repair the boat and a team to put her back in the water and raise the mast again. All the players play their parts and play together.
And out and about:
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: holiday.
I am not sure about the trim on these sails…. bit worrisome. Really windy! What do you think?
For Friday’s Ragtag Daily Prompt: slide.
Do they ever start sliding down and dislodge each other?
From Sunday. We are getting fog in the morning and yesterday it lasted past noon. But when it burns off, we are still getting gorgeous fall days.
sometimes eyes want
nice shoulders, I’ll say that
worn carhartts have seen work
can’t make assumptions
even the attorneys have boats
sand the brightwork on the weekends
and it’s not fall yet
so the shedboys aren’t hunting
winter warmth, house and embrace
she’s aware he’s looking
watch the projections
slither over each other
written in response to etouffee’s She just looks at me
