Life and writing, serious and humorous, old and young, past and present: it's all part of the fabric.
A very classic Maine scene.
Une décoration qui peut devenir en hiver celle d'un noël nautique...Gros bisous.
Is that standard practice, to remove buoys from the water during winter? I guess I've never given it a thought. Lovely colors and an interesting variety of shapes and sizes though.Winter vacation for these hard working buoys. Just hanging out and sharing a few tales. . .
Karen: I *think* the answer is that yes, they remove the buoys in the winter (in part to repair and repaint), unless they are esp. hearty lobstermen and continue to trap.
Do I see snow?
Lori: Yes! A couple inches but now it's raining. Alas. Snow where you are yet?
We loved seeing the colorful buoys hanging in yards on our visit to Maine...almost like holiday lights.
“Maybe we’re here only to say: house, bridge, well, gate, jug, olive-tree, window--at most, pillar, tower--but to say them, remember, oh! to say them in a way that the things themselves never dreamed of so intensely.” --Rilke
