Evening at the Marina

Ashley River Marina, Charleston, SC  © Doug Hickok


I think it would be pretty cool to live in a sailboat or yacht as some people do. Charleston has plenty of places to dock your boat and enjoy the serenity of an evening on the waters of the city.

  1. I like marinas and I visit them whereever I go near the seaside. These days I'll go to spent 2 weeks of my summer vacation in Montenegro and Albania, at their seaside. I presume I will have a lot of marinas to see:)

  6. The yellow life preserver near the center immediately catches the eye. Ialso like the glass-smooth water and the hints of color in the early evening sky.

  10. Oh yes, people actually do that in London.
    My new place is just 3 mins walk from the Historical Docklands.
    People moor their boats there permanently.
    Greenwich is about 20 mins walk from my apartment.

  11. Absolutely. There is a certain romance to that lifestyle isn't there. I see the owners at the marina in Sidney BC, enmjoying those summer evenings on their vessels, chilled, happy and content and it alwaysseems so idyllic.

    I guess then you have to balance that with practicalities like mooring fees, fuel costs and such but hey, to my eyes the romance is still very much there.

    I stayed on a houseboat on the South fork of the river Skagit, Washington State a few years ago at the invitation of a fine photographer I met through my old blog, and it was an incredible, rustic, charming experience that I'll never forget. This is a beautifully atmospheric frame that has that air of romance and I can almost smell thewater in my nostrils.

    Small world as LONDON CALLER lives right in my neck of the woods too, Greenwich Park being a childhood fave location of mine.
