Archive for the ‘ SHIP AND BOATS AND CANOES ’ Category


2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate SHIPS. All year they have been researching the 19th century and they are mightily impressed with the nippiness with which the early Colonial hithered and thithered along the Coast and even unto and from Far Off Lands. They have just returned from a trip along the Northern Rivers of NSW and up into New England. SHIPS and BOATS and CANOES. Wot a fine way to get about !


The world is sending explanatory notes
Loading ships and planes with them,
We have sent our explanatory notes
Even to faraway stars and planets.

Three Poems



The Wanderer

All day they loitered by the resting ships,
Telling their beauties over, taking stock;

by John Masefield
