Finding You a Ride to Nova Scotia

Faffing Around with my camera, I captured these images in the harbor.
As always, I ignored the yachts and power boats,
preferring what they tow behind them.
These lovely kayaks with their orange paddles make lovely color.
The reflection is just as important to the picture as the boat.
   The red on this tube has faded to pink in the sunshine.
My all time favorite tender.  I have never seen this boat go out. 
 I think they leave it there for me to photograph.
  I love this little red boat.  It looks like it has had 100 coats of paint.
And then, there's the practical "faux" wooden boat.
Probably made from recycled juice boxes.
And then there was this guy.  This sailboat was packed full of stuff and in not too "Ship Shape" Shape.
At first I think he thought I was from a newspaper.  He was looking for someone to join him on a sail through the Great Lakes right through the Saint Lawrence Seaway to Nova Scotia on the Atlantic.
Sadly, I couldn't join him.......other commitments and all....
I wonder if he's a tidy sailor?
Love how his paint dripped.

    The red boat is my favourite.
