I Like the Red One!


Hi! It's me at Fisherman's Cove.
I just wanted to tell you that I like the red one.
Have a look!


Isn't it a beauty popping out like that in this beautiful little cove!


The name says she's a "Hurtin' Unit" 


so if bright, gorgeous, pop in your face red means "Hurtin Unit",
then I agree!


The other "Units" are your regular run of the mill colours
like white, green and baby blue,


but something has captured our attention 


with this magnificent shade of red


even up against the "First Born"
(which apparently is the third born the captain said)


the reflections seem to blend beautifully with the baby blue sky and grey wharf beams


The city is not that far off as I peered through the vessels


Then I saw this!


Now that's a load of rope.
No chance I'll be unwinding this pile any time soon.
I'll just give it a sniff.


Jim is down the docks talking to a captain who filled him in on a lot of information.
One boat is heading to the Caribbean soon.
What do you think if I jump on board?


Have you ever thought of stowing away on a boat?
I would love to stowaway on that sparkling red one.
I could do that so very easily!

    1. Yes, the pile of string got my eye immediately as we rounded the corner of one of the fishing buildings. The colours really perked me up and I figured a good sniff would solve my quandry of "What's this all about? What does one do with so much string? What colour do you like the best?"

      Hugs Tweedles!

    1. It was so peaceful today, GT!!! We love to discover little harbours and coves and take many pictures. I just sniff to make sure everything is A.O.K.!!!!

  3. We like that red one, too. Stowaway on a fishing boat, so you can have some fresh fish...just an idea.

    1. The ropes were so eye-catching Debra. Jim took some pictures of the rope as well, but his best are some reflections of other ropes in the water. I just LOVE them!

    1. Welcome Gert!
      I am always happy to have a photographer come along on my ride with my dog Sophie a Labradoodle.

      Enjoy the ride and come back again soon!

  7. Oh my gosh, I agree 100 percent! The red one is perfect, if for nothing other than providing great photos. I used to have a boat in the Santa Cruz Harbor and would take my Sophie there for walks. She didn't like the boat but you couldn't say the word "harbor" without sending her into a fit of excitement. Those were fun times.

    1. Firstly, I didn't realize you had a "Sophie" as well ~~~ I trust she gave you sweet enjoyment like my Sophie does. She's staring out of the window as I type looking at a pheasant ~~~~ always on guard she is!
      Secondly, a boat of your very own ~~ how wonderful! I suspect my Sophie could manage the boat with coaxing and support. She's game for pretty much anything!
      Thirdly, we visited Santa Crux many many years ago ~~~ so lovely. Would love to go back again and soak up the ambiance there.
      I trust your home now is so peaceful for your soul. I'm imagining all those California poppies smothering the countryside ~~~ mmmm!

      Regards!

  8. Yes, that red one certainly pops! And I love all that colourful rope. That makes for a great image. I'd love to sneak onto a boat that is heading to a beach down south!

    1. Wouldn't that be the greatest trip ~~~ moseying down the eastern seaboard without a care in the world! I could handle that very easily. Now the guys that's another story for one in particular who gets sea woozie very easily!

      Red is my colour for today!!

      Sophie Doodle here!

  9. It would be great to stowaway
    As long as no water came our way
    The red one is grand too
    And the caribbean sounds like a place to come due
    Nice and warm with lots of beach
    So a litterbox is never out of reach

    1. sailing on the ocean blue
      with lots and lots of bones to chew
      while landing skilfully on a pristine white beach
      having always been out of my reach
      I seek and I dream
      as always!

    1. It would take a very long time to chew this pile of rope and I half suspect there would be some competition wish the fishers(P.C. corrected :-)I am )!!

      I just wonder if there are more piles that I missed.I must do some checking on this!

      Chewers!

  11. I love the boats, what a relaxing scene, and another relaxing scene, oh and there's another! I'll bet you were so relaxed you took a nap when you got home, huh, Sophie?

    1. I sure enough did, Sharon! This tourist haven in the summer would be FILLED with wide-eyed peeps taking all this tranquility in. Today, however it was just us meandering, sitting and sniffing! The guys sniff too, you know!!

  12. Yes I have long dreamed of stowing away on a boat or train :)

  13. Beautifully shot photos guys - the red one really stands out doesn't it?
    I also love the masses of rope - very creative and artistic. No wonder Sophie was impressed.
    Yes, warmer climes sound good at this time of year although I don't think I'd fancy sailing from NS to the Caribbean - I get sea sick in a bath!

    1. It would be a long trip but I do know of people with strong sea legs taking the sojourn. Gravol plus for me know doubt. I got seasick one time crossing from Bar Harbour Maine U.S.A to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia on a new vessel called the Cat ~~~ I was so ill because this new boat was twice as fast as the old boat ~~~ they stooped using the new one 3 years ago ~~~ I think I know why!
      The colours very fantastic this day at the cove. I believe the water and light just made everything work. We were so fortunate to experience this!

  14. Find one coming to the Mediterranean and sneak onboard!!! What an eye. Beautiful, beautiful images. (I wonder exactly what "unit" is hurtin'.)

    1. I thought the very same as you, Mitch ~~~ Did someone stub their toe or knee or heaven forbid!!!? Anyhoo ~~~ the captain loves his boat and so do we. Jim was talking to one of the captains heading for the Caribbean who also rents his vessel. Now that would be an interesting prospect. Now I've heard of crossing for the Med. from Miami, now that sounds courageous too. I can just see Sophie guiding us along.
      Hope your weather has improved. I believe you deserve a good day on the beach!

  15. I love the red one too! And what a great name she has! Did all those ropes smell like fishes, Sophie?!? Were they fishin' ropes?

    1. They had their own "salty" smell for sure which was quite refreshing, nothing obnoxious mind you just good ol' salty salt!! I believe the ropes are used for tieing things "down" on the vessels.

  16. Hello Sophie and Ron,
    What a cute place and what wonderful red boat! Can you buy fish there? Aston loves the different coloured ropes!!

    1. Yes, fish can be bought in this location. There were a couple fish establishments around the corner located on the left hand side of most of this pictures. Fresh fish, nothing better!
      The colours caught my eye the other day when we visited the boardwalk nearby. As we were leaving the parking lot, I saw the colours popping in the cove and so I suggested we visit the place a few days later. So glad we did.
      Aston and Sophie could have a real good tug-of-war with these ropes!!

    1. The pile of rope is fast becoming everyone's favourite ~~~ next time a come across something similar I'll put Sophie in the middle of it!!

  18. I too love the ropes, so colorful and fun looking.

    Since red is the opposite of cyan, it always stands out nicely against the sea water and sky. So dramatic. As for stowing away on a boat, now there's a great idea! But there's no grass to pee on out there in the ocean.

    1. Who needs grass when you can tinkle in the ocean blue(or cyan)!!!

  20. I don't think that you'd need to stowaway, Sophie! You could just ask the captain - one look in your eyes would convince him to take you!

    1. I do have a way of convincing my Dads to do as I say (as in work them), so a captain of a ship wouldn't be too much of a challenge I don't think!

      Hey, when are we going to the cove again guys? Jus' wonderin'!!!

  21. What a beautiful little cove! I'd take any of the "units", thank you very much ;)

    1. Wouldn't it be a blast and 1/2, stepping onto one of those vessels, settling in and slowly weaving our way out of the cove into the ocean blue!!

  22. I like that red. It is close to the red the we had on our basement wall. At first I was angry at our son for painting the walls red, but later I like it.
    I wonder if you met "Samson" from "Desert Canyon Living".
