“Ships” That Pass


Motor Man and I just never know what type of vessel we might see passing by our house on any given day.

Occasionally we’ll see a tug.

Or a tug pushing a barge.

Or maybe a pleasure boat. A nice one. Towing a dinghy.

Notice anything peculiar about this next photo?

There’s no one piloting that boat. It was in the midst of a violent northeaster, and the boat had floated across a larger river and up into the smaller one that flows by our house.  Unbelievably this boat didn’t crash into anything, and the owner later recovered it – undamaged.

I must admit that I was more than a little concerned when I glanced out and saw this one day.

And seeing this just made us smile.
