Rock the dock!
When I gaze up from my note alignment duties and stare out across the deck railing, I never know what will greet my eyes. Every day is different. In addition to all the wildlife I catalog both here and on my Facebook page, there are plenty of man-made objects that float by. Most of them are commonly known as boats. But today was a first: not just a boat, but a dock and a ramp, sauntering past me just as I rose my head to think about the next note to be aligned.
Yup, it’s a dock, for sure.
This sloop is missing a golden opportunity to throw out a line and come to shore. Sort of like a mid-air refueling maneuver.
Here they are, coming in for a landing, at the Lonesome Cove landing.
See that miniature guy, motioning at the end of the ramp? He’s probably saying, “Steady… straight back… don’t hit the damn poles… someone’s probably watching and it could be really embarrassing.”
Made it! Where’s the beer?
Voila. Instant ramp and dock. Hooray: summer must be near!
