Wordless Wednesday - Saturday Edition - No Parking

No Parking

a long dock filled with boats

We stopped by a local marina on our way to our favorite fishing spot on the ocean.

The boys were looking for some bait and were hoping to find some here.

I wandered around a bit on the floating docks and noticed how crowded it seemed to be with all the boats.

Of course, this was a marina for pleasure watercraft, and it was in the middle of the week that we stopped by.

I would think that on the weekend, these boat's owners must be out enjoying the water and their recreation time.

But during the week, these boats all sit patiently waiting for the week-end - just like we all do too - but perhaps not as patiently as them.


  1. I like your photo of the pier. I took a similar one last December in Coconut Grove (near Miami) as I thought it'd make a great painting. In fact, it did--and I've considered doing a series from the same vantage point. Nice work!

  2. Hi Sharon, Thanks for stopping by. Do you have a photo of your painting? I would love to see it!

  3. Oh my, that is a crowded marina. Do those boats remain there during the winter or are they stored somewhere?


  4. I really like this photo :) I'd love to be walking down there to my very own boat.

  5. Hi Bobbie - all those boats will be gone in the winter. They have this HUGE sling that lifts them out of the water and up on the land for winter storage.

  6. People with cameras - I would love to have one of them too!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment - it is appreciated! I will do my best to return it with a visit to your blog. Take care, and enjoy!
