VISITORS BY BOAT – July 24, 2017

Good morning everyone and welcome to a new week. I’m looking forward to some good walking with all of you and sharing my wee seaside town.

There are a lot of tourist’s here in the summer and most come by ferry or drive over on the one bridge that connects to another island that is then connected to the mainland by another bridge. But for the more adventurous they come by boat and anchor or moor in Penn Cove. They dingy into town and enjoy all we have to offer.

This morning there were quite a number “swinging” in the cove.

I spotted a nicely groomed rose vine in the shape of a heart on the side of the Admiralty Inn. I always find it amazing that I spot something like this for the first time when I walk or drive by almost every day.

I also found something new in town. There’s a new restaurant where the Mosquito Fleet Restaurant used to be. It’s a downstairs restaurant right over the water. They also have a nice little outside dinning area. I have no idea what kind of food they serve or how good it is but will have to give it a try. Welcome Tee & Nee Cafe.

And now for the question of the day for all you farmers and rust heads. What the heck is this?

I spotted this two-seater at Sherman’s Pioneer Farm where they have lots of very old rusting farm equipment. It looks like it attaches to something but I have no idea what it does. Any ideas out there?

As always, thanks for walking with me and we’ll do a lot more as the week rolls along.

  1. Ken, the two-seater at Sherman’s Pioneer Farm is used to plant tomatoes, cabbage, etc. while being pulled by a tractor. Trays of plants were placed over the wheel area. It is a very efficient quick way to plant large fields. My wife knew what it was right away since she used to ride on one when she worked on a farm many years ago.
    Love your blog and your photos.
