Watery Wednesday: Adventures!


Passing through the locks,
small vessel and small crew sail
toward great adventures.

  1. I enlarged the photo to get a better look. What a cool photo!

  2. This is a great photo! It may be a small vessel, but it is inundated with tyres! A

    Also, thank you so much for your lovely haiku in response to my restless waters!

      You’re welcome for the haiku, Gemma. Your photo was all the prompt I needed to write! As for the tyres (or tires, in our part of the world), they serve, I think, as buffers against the walls of the lock. No tyres/tires and the poor little craft would be dented and bruised and battered, perhaps beyond repair!

  3. For me, the tire bumpers is what makes the photo.

    Here is my Watery Photo, hope to see you stop by to view. It’s always great to have you visiting.

  4. Great boat, Love the tyres!

  5. how we love those locks! We have seen such an interesting parade of boats lock through there — yachts in front of fishing boats that look like they’re on their last legs, expensive pleasure boats in front of work boats….it is a constant source of wonder! Thanks for the Pacific Northwest memories.

  6. I bet that tug has seen a lot of adventures, too! Thanks for visiting mine and leaving such a nice haiku!

  7. What a cool photo! I love watching boats go through the canal here, but it hasn’t opened for the season yet.
