Bilgewater and Barnacles....Aye Aye Me Hearties

All good things, sadly, must come to an end.
And I say 'Au revoir!' to my husband, but not farewell, as he trundles out the door and back to work today.

"Bye sweetie, kiss kiss!", I lovingly call after him.  "I'm missing you already...."
Was that a tear form in the corner of my eye, or was it merely the reflection of early morning light?

And then, feeling remarkably like Meg Ryan in 'You've got mail', I scurry with slipper-clad feet into the computer room.

Now, if you haven't seen the movie, then you have to go immediately and hire it, so you can get the picture.

Now I swear, the flanny pyjamas Im wearing as I type, look just like hers.  And the scurry was straight out of that movie.

So, here I am to share with you my latest wanderings and such.

To celebrate my dear heart's returning to work, we drove down off the mountain to the coast on Saturday.

And I wanted to show you, not so much the imagery from the day, but a bit of colour and texture.

Here is where the two of us had lunch.

Don't you love old fishing boats?

I think Ken was more interested in this tho,

Such lovely vintagey colours in this sign

And in this boat,

and the great colours in these nets

and this door,

Blue sky tried to get a look in behind the clouds

A weather-beaten wall

Past the old lighthouse, not in use anymore.

And the boat ramp

Now,if you are going to stand here for any length of time.......

Make sure you have an umbrella......

Until next time,

Row, row, row, your boat,



  1. Oh my gosh I want to go here! or there! I love harbours and lighthouses and fishing boats. My favorite is the red, white and yellow one. And that blue it! I love those colors. Hmmm, I wonder if I could find some yarn in those colors....

    One time my husband and I took a Michigan vacation and went to every harbour and lighthouse on the west side of the state. We had so much fun we did it a couple of years later.

    And seriously, I'm mad at Meg Ryan right now. For having an affair with our own Indiana boy John Mellencamp.
