What’s In a Name? ~

Last summer, Al and I took an extended weekend and drove up to Alexandria Bay for a mini-anniversary-getaway.  As we are very low-key entertainment people, I took much enjoyment out of wandering around and sightseeing.  I am particularly fond of water (fresh or salt), so I especially liked meandering the docks and waterfront areas watching swimmers and boats come and go. 

 I started noticing some of the names of the private boats that entered/exited the main docking area for the village.  I decided to take photos of those boats/names and make a blog post from them.

Anchor’s aweigh! Clayton, New York


Al and I took a mini vacation in August 2012 up to Alexandria Bay, New York.  On the way back home after 3 beautiful sun-filled days, we took the “back roads” and found this park in Clayton (?), New York.  At least, I think it was Clayton.  But I saw this ginormous anchor and couldn’t resist.

This is my submission for the first part of Cee’s Challenge, Part 1 of the 5 Chinese Elements… Metal.  Thanks, Cee!
