Welcome to the final Challenge for the Summer Challenge Schedule this Challenge has an additional day added to it to keep us on track for the Free Sunday..

In this Challenge I'd like to see all manner of Boats, Ships, Yachts, Schooners, any kind of ocean or water vessel,
Could even be in Dry dock..or a Ship wreck..

Meeting at Night

I
The grey sea and the long black land;
And the yellow half-moon large and low;
And the startled little waves that leap
In fiery ringlets from their sleep,
As I gain the cove with pushing prow,
And quench its speed i’ the slushy sand.

II
Then a mile of warm sea-scented beach;
Three fields to cross till a farm appears;
A tap at the pane, the quick sharp scratch
And blue spurt of a lighted match,
And a voice less loud, thro’ its joys and fears,
Than the two hearts beating each to each!

Good challenge. I gotta say I never thought there would be quite that many seagulls around a shrimp boat. I guess it makes sense, though.

Anyway, you've set the bar pretty high to start the challenge. Ill throw out a couple from the archives, but I would really like to go get something new as well.

Thanks for the illustrated poetic start Very nice. and thank you, too, for all you do. Love the shrimp boat.

We have lots of boats up here. Especially lobster boats. I am certain to post some repeats in this challenge, but I'll try not to. More tomorrow.
