That green boat with lady name too?. The wording are not very clear. Ah, that one duck at the foreground, very nice!.

Very good picture but it does make you wonder, why paint a boat bright green? One thing for sure. You cam see it very far away. Helen

Since I grew up in a coast town on the westcoast of Norway, I love your pics from the harbour! Almost feels like coming home!

But what about that green boat!? Funny - but it makes great reflections in the water!

Chris said...

A very nice harbour picture. I love this boat and I would really like to go on it for a little tour at sea.

Richard said...

Great picture. It looks like they painted the boat with brushes and not a very good job at that.

Hi Tabib, No this is one of the rare boats that doesn't have a name. That is a Great Black-backed Gull in the foreground.

Hi Helen, I've never seen another boat painted this color. Perhaps it is because the owner is Irish? It is a good possibility.

I know, Valkyrien, I get the same feeling when I view blogs from your corner of the world!

Hi Chris, we have boats that go out that you can go along with. In the summer, I go out on the whale boats and see some great pelagics.

Hi Frank, Actually, in person, the boat is pretty ship shape. They get banged up a little bringing the pots on board and what you see is the reflections from the water shimmering on the side of the boat. (The sun is off about 90 deg to the right of the photographer.) She's quite hadsome in person and she is a working boat.

Great grassy green. I love blue and green together (have I said that before on your blog? I think I have). Great reflection in the blue water, to be sure to be sure (said in an Irish accent) (-:

Great boat picture. I love how colurful it is.

Steve B said...

Hi Jenny, I don't think you have mentioned that you like blue and green. :)

Hi Kim, Yup, lots of color here.

The more you post pictures of the sea, the more I long to get down to the coast again. It is more than a years since I was last there and am seriously contemplating it for my weeks break in May thanks to you. :)

Between the boats and the buildings, your harbor is very colourful. I bet the people are wonderfully colourful and spirited too.

Roy said...

Its nice to see different coloured boats Steve, makes a change from what you see over here. They obviously take pride in their boats.

Eve said...

Green is my favorite color and this just proves why...what a great little stand out boat!

Steve B said...

Hi Joan, When I married B, I had to promise her that I'd get her to the coast at least once per year. I've lived here for two and a half years now and it's still like being on vacation.

Oh yes, Natural Moments, there is no shortage of colorful people in Gloucester. ; )

Hi Roy, Yes, they are working boats and they all have a personality.

Hi Eve, we have lots of dark green boats here, especially the schooners, but Kelly Green is a little unusual.

Mary said...

I always enjoy your birds, Steve, but the harbour shots are fantastic. So pretty and nostalgic, to me...
