Watery Wednesday N:o 34 - Boats



Watery Wednesday is hosted by 2sweetnsaxy. Jump in your canoo and go for a splash around in the watery parts of our planet by clicking on the above icon.


This time my entry is concentrated on different kinds of 'boats'.


An old fishing trawler that don't anymore leave the shore but is used by the family, who owns it, as a summer cottage in a sense. The children like having meals there and also like to sleep over on warm nights.


A motorized boat in the Tapiola marina


A sailing boat in the Soukka marina waiting for some action. The rocky hill in the background is called Kasavuori. It was used during the war as a signaling place due to it's height and proximity to open sea.


A man laying out fishing nets from a rowing boat and a hopefull seagull keeping him company. In the background is a small island with a couple of cottages on it. Last winter I walked around it with my dogs.


A coalship delivering coal to the Inkoo coal harbour in early April (hence the ice still lying on a big part of the sea). This harbour lies close to our summer cottage opposite side of the same bay as where we have our own personal stretch of water. That is normally counted so that it's the with of the plot of land and 200 metres out from the shoreline.

These are great shots again, as always. I love the idea of the old boat but still in anchor for the family's use. Nice idea. Glad to see you back.

Hienoja tuttuja satamamaisemia. Kiva että oli Inkookin mukana. Tuossa satamassa en ole käynytkään.

I like the idea of using the old trawler as a sort-of-cottage. I don't think you have to be a kid to enjoy that kind of fun!

Are all of the boats in the same area? It is a nice collection. As usual, you have great ideas and imagination!

Så flotte båtbilder du har lagt ut da frue! Så nydelige - og så deilig å se vann og båt og nydelig vær!!!

Har ikke vært så aktiv på bloggen det siste jeg heller - og det er mye å ta igjen med kommentarer og slikt! Det vet vel du også nå - som er borte litt nå og da for tiden! Pfuh! :)
