Boat Launch

There's a new boat launch on Sebago Lake in Standish this summer. The last time I photographed here, it was January and there was nothing to look at but ice fishing shacks. Now, this is quite a change, for the better I might add. Hate fishing in the winter or in the spring with the bugs! Boats and dogs, I have neither. It's my struggle in life. As a child, I wanted a dog. Mom said, "Wait til you get older and married, and then you'll get your dog." I married a wonderful woman, but to put it nicely, she has no interest in having any pooch around the homestead. Kind of ironic, but I can handle it. Love cats anyway! Now as for the boat issue, they say the two best days in a boat owner life is the day they buy their boat and the day they sell it. I'm resigned to the fact, that'll I'll experience neither in my lifetime. Hey, I can live with this too. You see, at the heart of the matter, I'm really an easy man to please!


  1. You're darned right! If dogs were as smart as cats it would be a different story. And as far as the boat is concerned, go ahead, but you'd be in charge of the whole thing....ha ha
    Love ya!!

    When I see this picture I think of two things: Frye's Leap and The TV tower in the distance. When the WGAN tower was constructed in the 60's, at one time, was the tallest structure in the world. I remember dad loading up the station wagon and bringing the family to see it. It was a hot summer day and we drove up Rt302 to Raymond and veared off a dusty dirt road to the viewing area.....bumper to bumper traffic. Sort of reminded me of "Field of Dreams", you know, "if you build it they will come."

  3. You've caught this at such a great angle. Feel as if I could run down the pier and take off in flight. I love when E leaves a comment. I'm glad you both feel that way about cats. It could be enough just to have a friend with a boat, right?

  4. Love this shot! When I look at this I feel the same way as Brattcat. You just want to run down the dock and take off!!
