Daybreak

The putt-putt sound of the motor keeps time with the small wave rolling on the bow.  Sunlight fragments and scatters all around the little boat as the cool sea breeze keeps the summer heat at bay.  Close to the shore, wave-runners dart and jump like the seagulls circling around in the air.  The buildings behind them fade into the earth as the trees tower over them.  A fish breaks the water in greeting.  The man smiles.  Maybe later he’ll do a little fishing, but for now the moment is perfect.Little Tug

  1. Heavy and slow, a pain to maintain. But simple and traditional too. A working boat’s heritage with cleanliness of line and function. Reminiscent of the days of a less complex past. Days gone not to return. Enjoy life while you can.
