I live near a pier. The only activity here is from the locals – a virtual united nations. No boats, no ferries and that is a good thing.
People come out to fish. But I’ve come to realize that this is less about fishing, and more about community. They come out for sunrise, sunsets and in between, picnics and barbecues on days spent by the water.
People are just people. And when we allow for that, we’re all the better for it.

a very picturesque blush-
here, the earth meets sky
For Word Craft with Colleen where the prompt is “taste the rainbow” to read more about it go here.
…I was on a cruise to Alaska this past week that made it’s last stop at Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. At the wharf houseboats hosted businesses, very picturesque. Around there somewhere was a classic car show. We missed it. But,on our walk we noted a few of the cars parked on the streets. We were glad to get a few photos.
Taken off the pier in my neighborhood one evening this winter. A spring day came to visit. It’s a peaceful place where friends meet and folks toss their fishing line. The time for the comings and goings of boats have long gone. This, I am sure contributes to the sense of peace I feel here.
