Ladies and Gentlemen…

31 May

All winter long she slept, haunted by dreams of dancing with dolphins and dodging crab-pots. As she settled with a soft sigh, HE came back…
…nudging her out of her slumber…

lover's louch

…touching her like a lover…

Wait a minute! I think I’ve been reading too many romantic novels! Forget all that; let’s start again…

winter harbor

Bushranger’s been sleeping in her cozy shed at Winter Harbor for 8 months.

racked and stacked

Racked and stacked with like-minded boats…

tight quarters

…she waited for the ice to disappear and her crew to return…

…and we did…

Bushranger looked pretty good! Her batteries took no time at all to recharge, and the water tanks filled with no complaints. The gents got out the big toys

and quickly brought her back to where she belonged…

into the light

…go into the light, Bushranger…

left the building

…Ladies and Gentlemen, Bushranger has LEFT the building…

feet wet

…’feet wet’ gents…

where she belongs

back to work
…now, the fun starts!

    Wow! Look at those white legs! Remember vinegar takes the sting out of the sunburn in your future!

    “racked and stacked” might also have been drawn from that same romance novel MrsB! Now she is in the water I guess the BOAT acronym comes into play again. Love your final shot – could be called: waiting for a decision from he who must be consulted.

      She weathered the winter beautifully and her engine started straight up. All the other boats that came out with her had problems. HA!
