summer morning/ my neighbour's boat/ nudges the dock ..... lovely ... i am musing on the meaning behind 'neighbour' and what is going on in his boat compared to yours on a lovely quiet calm summer morning on the water ... i hope you and yours are well >>> Gina

Beautiful. This reminds me of holidays to small harbour towns. Water and boats combine to make the most relaxing sounds. That knocking of hulls and that ting of sailing boats ropes on masts. Wow. You've conjured such impressions for me from this.
