I Want a Guitar Boat

After the Sea-Ship.

...After the whistling winds; after the white-gray sails, taut to their spars and ropes...
After the Sea-Ship...

By Walt Whitman    

Today has become unexpectedly busy, my friends, but I just wanted to pop in and say hello. I hope you all had wonderful weekends. 
Oh my gosh, this video clip idea is quite cool and inspiring...what a lovely song, too! "Make You Happy" by Josh Pyke.
He's on Parramata River in Sydney; you can see the Sydney Tower in the background.
It's not the soft mellow song that makes me happy. It's that lovely boat. 
 
Who wouldn't want their own giant guitar boat? 

How about sailing the seas on that amazing guitar boat and keep it afloat forever? xx

Erm, what's a guitar boat? Did I miss something?

I wish we had a blue sky like that here today, it's so grey and windy!

steveroni said...

Is a guitar boat like a love boat--with strings attached?--grin!

Betty, you do not remember, but a week ago you asked me a question about love. I answered it at great length--and the goddess in charge of comments on blogger decided you should not know what I wrote. Dammmit, that is SO frustrating!

Anyway, I love boats, used to live on a houseboat, for many years had boat in my back yard, 5 minutes to the deep blue Gulf of Mexico. LOVE the sea. My son named "Joe-Boats"...so THERE!

Thanks for dropping by steveroni...where do you get the time, I see you everywhere.

PEACE!
Steve

It's wonderful to be around such beauty. The sea is peaceful and I can see that the guitar boat made it that much better. I never been on one. I may have to put that on my to-do list of adventures. ;-)

Never heard of a guitar boat, but I like the photos!

steveroni said...

NOT FAIR! NOT FAIR! Turning off comments is like a slap in the face--not really--grin! But maybe it's like a "pat on the cheek".

In reality, I totally respect your desire/need for this time to be busy at another project. (Yeah, right! So that's why I am sneaking in the back door to leave a comment, HA!

PEACE!
