Ship Shape

Colorful and all left in good order, right down to their carefully coiled bow lines, I came across these little 8' El Toro center boards, just like the ETs and Sabots my husband learned to sail on as a kid in the Newport Beach, CA Parks & Recreation program. Only theirs weren't tricked out with flames and bright colors! I spied these old summertime friends of many children up on the dock at the Center for Wooden Boats while out for an evening walk. Wishing you all a good start to a great weekend!

I love them! That orange interior would be my first choice. I started a sailing class in Santa Barbara years ago, but had to quit it to take a job. After a few weeks, my paychecks started bouncing! No more job, and no more sailing. Bummer.

I just wish we were closer to water. Most any kind of water would work.

I did note that the boats are all made different too. The bracing inside.

Have a nice weekend.

First, my apologies for a bit of cut and paste commenting. I have been doing the rounds via Bloglines and looking at all the pictures from my favourite photo blogs, but haven’t been leaving comments. Generally, I try to comment as much as I can (I know how good it is for ‘morale’ to know that someone is out there appreciating them), but after the birth of my second son, I am a bit knackered to think up something witty and insightful on the hop. Thus the resort to Control+C and Control+P!

How pretty! There is just no end to the wonderful sights you find to post! Living by the water anywhere has to be such a great pleasure.

I love the Center for Wooden Boats! This is a beautiful shot and reminds me of the cute and colorful boats you see in the small villages in Italy.

Love the colors here, Kim! So bright and summery!

Oh, the colours, I love them! So cheerful and eye-catching. And yet, so stoic and serene. Fabulous catch today.

Beautiful photo, Kim. Geometrical and architectural in its own way. You have a fine eye for this type of composition.
