greetings from the seaside

wenduine, belgium, 1958
you can take the sea out of a boat. [if the boat gets soaked, e.g.]. but can one take the boat out of the sea? for fear of looking a little silly, perhaps? according to piece of evidence II given here, one can. moreover it is a sight i have come across before, and it always cracks me up a little. for boats need to lay lazily on boat supports. if not, one is sailing dry land.

or posing for a snapshot, of course. i feel a a proper lartigue coming on. let's!


  1. Oh no not sailing on dry land, i prefer to sail before the wind and now and than even to sail close to the wind, but the photo is great, xx
