smiley WHY IS A SHIP CALLED SHE . . . ?

a ship is called SHE because there is always a great deal of bustle around her

there is usually a gang of men about

she has a waist and stays

it takes a lot of paint to keep her good looking

it is not the initial expense that breaks you, it is the upkeep

she can be all decked out

it takes an experienced man to handle her correctly

and without a man at the helm, she is absolutely uncontrollable

she shows her topsides, hides her bottom

and when coming into port . . .

always heads for the bouys . . .

Pour moi un bateau , c'est d'abord un esprit de liberté.......mais quand tu évalues les contraintes, tu es bien prisonnier de cette liberté..:-))

and adventure upon the high seas maybe
would be fun and share laughter on the high sea
but what about seasickness and rough seas too
what would we do . . . no flip flops is the clue
grab a life vest I think maybe . . .
or someone next to you quickly hehe . . .
sit down before there is a man overboard
set the sails and lets go we must not be moored
gather everyone onboard and lets set sail . . .
under the moonlight shining perhaps pale
it should be fun but I don't have a clue
do you know how to sail ? the seas so blue !

to sail the seas I would love to go
a gentle breeze and sun and to go with the flow
to hear the waves on the side would be great
feel the breeze on my face to seal my fate
to sail under the moon and stars up high . . .
I can dream of past voyages, can you hear me sigh ?

thanks Marie-Claire . . freedom indeed . . . I wish !

She's called a she,
Because me as a he,
Would be an absolute
Fail at trimming a sail:)

Great light on this most appealing still life.
I love the description, too. Reminds me of something I read years ago: "The second happiest day of a man's life is the day he acquires a boat. The happiest day of a man's life is the day he gets rid of that boat."

Jaap van 't Veen has replied to beverleyplaya
Yours is on page 'Your news in a flash'; when you scroll down you will see it under 'Explore: current populair pictures'. It you click there the newest pictures don't show up. That's what I mean with 'in the weekends Explore doesn't work (properly)'.

beverleyplaya has replied to Jaap van 't Veen
Yes indeed ! I understand ... and this happens during the week also sometimes ;-)
it seems maybe it is not working quite correctly .... if you should miss looking on
your news in a flash ... you would not know and not see ... thanks for letting me
know anyway, much appreciated Jaap !
