Boat Friday

 

If you hitched your wagon to a star, which one would it be, I wonder?  :)

Great view of these boats in the Bay! I bet they're all in storage now. :-( If I hitched my wagon to a star, it would have to be Aldebaran, which is a red giant star about 65 light-years from the Sun in the zodiac constellation Taurus. smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, sound like you know what you want,Steven. smile Thanks.
I love the variety of boats and colors in your image!
And to answer your question... I think I'd choose Alpha Centauri B... It's name is taken from the Cantaur (you know how I love horses!). It is in the star system closest to the solar system (i.e. Earth - whom I love...); it's the third brightest star in the sky (I hate being first... too much attention!); It is the second in a triplicate - not as bright as Alpha Centauri A (again, I don't like the attention), yet it emits more energy (I like to think I have a lot of energy, and I thrive off the energy of others).
Sorry you asked?! smile
Ginnie Hart: I find it so interesting that you and Steven both know exactly what HEAVENLY star you would choose! I never expected to hear that, so, yes, I'm glad I asked. And here I was just thinking of the boats. smile

This is a wonderful, interesting image, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ray. A bunch of "stars" to choose from.
J'aime le nom du premier bateau.
Ginnie Hart: I would guess so, Martine. smile
I like boats, all boats and in this picture we have various choices for our eyes. I like them all and I like ports in general. Have a good day, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I feel exactly the same way, Marie, and would feel hard-pressed to pick a favorite in this image!

What a selection for us today, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Lisl. I once heard someone say that anyone who has choices is "rich."

This is nice, a real good variety of craft here Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Hard to choose which one I'd want to ride in for a day, Chris!

"Friend of the Sea"...
I think I will pick that of a ride.. and than sail it myself of course with the help of you, Don and Ruth....
I am impressed with Elizabeth' comment... wow...
I like this picture a lot, Ginnie. There are enough ships to sink a ship...
Ginnie Hart: Amie de la Mer makes a perfect choice, Astrid, especially if Don and Ruth can sail with us. For such a small harbor, I was surprised at all the choices!

So many different ships have come together here- a real harbour!
Ginnie Hart: So many different ships in such a small space especially, Philine. It actually surprised me.
Une vue que j'aime vraiment ....Merci
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Claudine. So much to see in such a small space.
Jolie ambiance dans ce port qui semble plein de charme.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: So much charm, indeed, Pascale, in such a small space. It intrigued me.

No idea about the star but I'd take the motor cruiser on the right ("Nirvana"?). That will do nicely.
Ginnie Hart: The boats were the "stars" I was talking about, Alan, so I'm glad to see what you would choose. Room enough for several of us to join you. smile
the only star i know the name of is sirius, i think there is two by that name, and i think it means 'the dog star'... where ever the dogs go, that's where i want to be... i think mark twain said that smile
Ginnie Hart: Of course that's the star you would choose, Elaine. But actually, I was thinking of these boats as the "stars"and wondering which one we'd all choose. HA!

Alpha Centauri because it’s the nearest to home.
Ginnie Hart: Well, then. A nice get-away, Chad. smile
Very fine view on the marina.
Ginnie Hart: I was surprised how many different boats were anchored in such a small space, Marjolein.
The red boat tied up beside yours and Astrid's would suit me fine. What boats there are here!
Ginnie Hart: That one befits you, Mary, indeed.
The one furthest away from Boris Johnson and Donald Trump
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! I'm with you on that one, Bill.
Plenty of choice here Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Brian. smile
It would have to be a 'Wandering star' ....It would be a change from the one I was born under. smile I knew what you meant, just waxing lyrical Ginnie.
I'll have the 'Amie de la mar'
Ginnie Hart: HA! You, the wanderer, Frank! Astrid also chose the Amie de la Mer, so we can ride together. smile
Quite an assortment of vessels!
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Tom, and in such a small space!
What a beautifully composed view of this busy harbor area. Friendship
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ruthie.

we have various choices Ginnie..


but where is the flying dutchman ?

greetings
Ginnie Hart: HAHA. Good question, Willy. smile
I dream one day you owe a yacht and invite me on board.
I shall christen your boat Ginnie de la Mer? How's that?
Ginnie Hart: That'll be the day,LC, but if it ever happens, YOU will definitely be invited. smile
*owe

own

A small letter can make a big difference in English. Isn't this amazing? LOL
Ginnie Hart: Yes, LC, but I know your English. smile
What a great scene Ginnie! It would have to be the 'friend of the sea' smile
Ginnie Hart: Lots of us will have a fun ride together, Martin. smile
It looks like a great day to be on the water.
Ginnie Hart: It was a rainy day, Michael, which may explain why so many boats were in the harbor?
my choice it The Friend Of the Sea Ginnie "Amie de la Mer"...much less pollution....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: A lot of us will be riding together in that boat, Peter. smile

What a busy spot! As always, the red pops add so much!
Ginnie Hart: A lot was included in such a small space, Bonnie, and I agree about the red pop adding so much. Thank you.

A star that was born. Boats are too fragile.
Ginnie Hart: So many stars, so few names!
