Our Ship (Boat) Has Come In
This old boat is "docked" in the street's grassy easement next to our place. We just figured, she was part of the deal.
Someone apparently tired of this spry vessel and decided her final happy landing would be on Island Street complete with dock line, anchor chain, bench seats and lots of dry rot. The visiting kids have a great time playing pirate ship as they set sail on imaginary adventures.
Each spring, she appears to be cutting through the waves of grass on her own great adventure having made it through another ruthless winter on the Oregon Coast. This year, I snapped a quick photo before Landlubber Bob and his lawnmower caused a low tide.
