I'll be sittin' when the evenin' come
Watchin' the ships roll in

Everythin' still remain the same
I can't do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I'll remain the same, yes -

Sittin' here restin' my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone, yes
Two thousand miles, I roam
Just to make this dock my home "

but I've built such a
 beautiful life, 
and I'm not ready 
to leave it.'"

You gave me a huge "Sea Fever" (by John Masefield)

"I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face and a grey dawn breaking.

I must go down to the seas again for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way, where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And a quiet sleep and a sweet dream, when the long trick's over."

My favorite poem to match your spectacular pics of the seas...

That is traffic! All these boats and even submarine, wow. I could sit on the beach and watch this show for hours. And so beautiful.

WHAT a sky!!! And I would love to dwell in the octopus's garden.

Such a contrast between ships on, and under the water!

Kay said...

You must be taking these photos from your balcony. You have the most amazing views!

Love Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay! You really do get to watch the ships go by! ;)
Hope you are having a great week. Thanks for stopping by. I wish you had a "follow by email" option. :(

Mahalo for the boat tour. Love the sub, but scared of the dark mystery ship. I'm not ready to leave yet either. My ship has not yet come in. DrumMajor
