Lovely boat. Yesterday's photo would have fitted the theme too!

Red boat, plus a person with a red t-shirt for a bonus.

Hm, visual verification is not working for me. I see no code word, let's see what happens if I hit publish anyway. ... Ah, now it appears.

Red + Black. On boat and pedestrians cloths. Very nice!

I've always had a fantasy of living on a houseboat. Probably a floating restaurant is the closest I'll come to it. Fun photo.

Nice old ship!

jilly: We found ourselves with the pleasant ”problem” of having two (three
actually) fitting photos for this occasion so we thought it would be most appropriate to run hem back-to-back in this fashion. Bernt’s sofa is funnier. This is more of a classic. Why choose when we can have both?

Thanks, all!

I would like staying in the "boatotel". Looks like great fun.

Per Stromsjo said...

Reminds me of another smallish red boat from April last year.

Stay tuned for yet another red boat during next week!
