With the prospect of our return to the boat tomorrow morning, I got to thinking about what essentially a boat means to me. I came up with the following list: workhorse / outdoors / shell / shelter / bed / journey / warmth / snug / shed / release / adventure / Summer / memory / activity and so very much more…
Whilst each idea in the list, at their most basic level, might be relatively easily achieved, it’s when they come together in the form of a boat, and the engine’s vibrations makes them sing, that something magical occurs.
The image above is, I think, of Caggy Stevens’ tug… I took it from the TV using my i-phone!
Hopefully it captures a little of what I’m on about? I can’t wait for the morning, and turning the engine!
