Peaks Pilings

These are the wooden pilings that support the ferry dock at Peaks Island. Usually once a summer, we find ourselves aboard a ferry and off to Peaks or sometimes just a cruise to nowhere. Watching the island people board and travel to their island destinations is a treat in itself. Forget about the rising fares that get you to the islands, sit back and wonder what they have in their numerous, mishmash of colored bags or take a gander at their goofy looking dogs sleeping at their feet. Going on the water always provides an interesting afternoon in the sun or below deck and lots of opportunities for subjects for future stories. Sometimes you might even hear some original sea chanties.

  7. It sounds like you are describing my homeless clients. They don't sing chanties, though, sea or otherwise.
