Ruby Tuesday: A Boat Is A Boat To Me

I took this last November. It was a beautiful, Indian summer day and I took a walk along the boardwalk in Keansburg, NJ.

One of the fishermen said it was a trawler. I looked up trawlers and it seemed like every type of boat on the seas was a trawler unless it was a canoe or an ocean liner.

Nautical I'm not.

It's red. The sky and bay are beautifully blue. And the wonderful Verrazano Narrows Bridge (the bridge of my beloved Motherland) is in the background.

Good enough for me.



Happy trawls ...

RUBY TUESDAY

Awesome, Diane. This is very well done. I love the colors! Wow! I also love being able to see the city, the bridge, the boat, the sky, the whole expanse.

It seems to be carrying much cargo.

I loved the blues overall.

That red "trawler" certainly stands out with the beautiful blues of the sky and water.

Great scenic shot. Happy trawls back at ya!

A boat is usually non-descript, a tool of commerce. Except in Ruby, it is stunning! And in the Lower New York Harbor has never looked better. Excellent!
