Where We Live






We thought you might like to see some photos mom took yesterday when she went for a walk. It was a nice warm and sunny day. This is someone out for a sail.




These people were busy putting a boat into the ocean. You can't drink ocean water, it's too salty. This wharf is not far from where we live, which is at the head of a big bay.















This is another view of the boat launching.
















Boats tied up at the wharf.














This is a working fishing boat and belongs to the man that lives next door to us.
















This one also belongs to someone who fishes for a living

















Mom remembered a verse about a cat being in a boat - a nonsense poem. Here it is:

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!'

(by Edward Lear)

You live in a purty place. It doesn't look so different from our purty area. Maybe you are my neighbors?!

Do you live in Washington? It sure looks like it!

In answer to your question, I weigh 9 1/4 pounds, and Clover weighs about 10 pounds. Shh, don't tell anyone that I'm smaller!

It looks very nice - where you live. Do you live on the water? Our mom likes water - us not so much.
