Wandering around quite early one morning on the Florida/Georgia border I was watching this small boat racing down the river.  Just watching and waiting until finally he passed through a small patch of peekaboo sunlight.  Luckily I was ready.

Alone on the boat.  I can only imagine the freedom and power coming from being alone on the boat, just me and the elements.  Though the sailor here is quite close to the civilized shore, still he gets to work with the wind and water and the numerous feelings that come with mastering the craft.  In San Francisco Bay it’s easy to find many boats in close proximity.  Here, he’s not only alone on the boat, he’s alone on his slice of the bay.

I wonder what it’s like.  Living in a relatively small space out in the public view.  Do they both live there?  Do they move from place to place or stay in the one spot?  They look quite relaxed.  Just reading the newspaper in the warm sunshine.  Would you call this living the good life?  A bit too small and public for me.  I’ve gotten used to more space around me.  I wouldn’t mind riding around on the canals, though, exploring the sights and sounds of Amsterdam on a private boat.  I think a week sounds about right.

All Stop.  That’s what the captain said.  With the enemy fleet up ahead we don’t want to be a floating target.  Hopefully they’re too engaged to see us so we’ll just sit here for a while and wait.  At least that could be the scene.  I wandered around this old ship one day and played with all kinds of scenarios in my mind.  Red Oak Victory was actually a cargo ship that supplied war ships in the Pacific during world war two.  The romance of being on it in reality is only in the movies, I think.

The Red Oak Victory is a World War Two naval supply ship.  It was built where it’s now docked in Richmond, California and I wandered in and through it last fall.  I’m not old enough to have participated in the war but it sure did take me back.  Hard to really imagine people actually doing all that; going to sea loaded with supplies for those actually doing battle in the Pacific, knowing you were a floating target.  At least we know they made it back.  Now it’s part of the “Rosie the Riveter” national monument in the Richmond shipyards.

I go up to my home town of Bellingham, WA. a couple of times a year.  One cool, cloudy fall day with nothing much happening I decided to take a drive down into the next county and found myself wandering the back roads.  I love taking the roads less traveled, biding my time, taking in a new and fresh view of familiar sites; passing rich farmland and dormant tulip fields until I came to the little town of La Conner.  It’s a quaint little town of artists and fishermen, built next to a small waterway near the mouth of the Skagit River.  The perfect place for a little lunch and a photo or two.

Being out and about before dawn is almost always exciting; in a quiet, meditative way.  The ease and subtleness of the increasing light.  The growing color wrapping itself within the particular environment.  It’s satisfying.  Now, I’m not often out before sunrise, mind you, but on this day in Savannah, Georgia, happily, I was.  There was hardly anyone around down on the river.  Just a ferry waiting for some passengers and the growing color of dawn.

Seattle’s a great city.  Water, hills, rain, water, clouds, rain, gray.  But this day is blue, and beautiful, and even though October, warm…. relatively.  On this day I took some time to head out to west Seattle towards Alki beach, then wound my way back in just to find myself drawn in to Harbor Island.  Hardly an Island, it’s where a lot of the heavy lifting type industry makes its home.  It also has a perfect view back onto the city.  This tug, bisecting the skyline caught my eye.
