Working Shoes

We spent a day last week in and around Kennebunkport taking in some sights and grabbing some lunch. We thought, with schools in session and many tourists heading back to maintain their lives, the crowds would be down. We were wrong. We had miscalculated a bit. We had not factored in the big tour busses. It was a very enjoyable adventure for us. In a small park close to the water there is this sculpture dedicated to the men and women who have worked the sea. We've been to the 'port many times but seem to have missed it on previous trips. After taking it all in, my eyes were drawn to their footwear, rugged, tough and ready for anything the day at sea might bring.
My work boots and Sperrys pale in comparison.
Wonderful details, yes?

  1. Very nicely sculpted, yes! One question: You may leave to the fish, but do you think at your age and general condition, you're going to catch one of those bikinis?

  10. Love memorials such as this one to honor working class folks in all occupations, and when it is a good artistic sculpture, double the pleasure.
