Y is for Yet another Yellow Yawl(?)

Yes, I know I have used Yellow before.
Yes, I know many others will use Yellow this time around too.
Yes, I know that Yawl is stretching the definition a bit (but Dictionary.com says:

A ship's small boat, crewed by rowers.)
But what is a "Youngster" to do? Spin a Yarn?
I'll throw in a white "Yawl" For good measure.


BTW, we have now arrived at what is charitably known as summer around here. That implies that I'll be a bit here, there and everywhere doing a bit of this and that. What I'll be doing less of, is blogging. So:

Have a nice summer!!!

Thanks for the cool images! Ya'll (southern USA dialect for "you all") have a good summer now, ya hear?

Reader Wil said...

Yawl is a new word for me! We have the word "jol"in Dutch for a small boat and it has approxemately the same pronunciation. Your photos will also be perfect for "Weekend Reflection"!
Thanks for the comment. I feel very flattered, I am afraid Google is always a great help in the ABC meme.

Får helt sommerfølelsen på topp av bildene! Båt hører med til sommer....selvom jeg ikke har noen selv! :)

Og han der sjøulken under her, er helt herlig!

Takk for visitten! Har endel å ta igjen med visitter nå, etter å ha vært borte så lenge. Men det er jo bare koselig å ta i tu med bloggen igjen! God sommer - så lenge!

Love the colorful yawls. Nice compositions Rune.
Enjoy your summer and respite from blogging.

James said...

Maybe it's the heat but the water looks very nice at the moment. I like the reflections too especially the bottom one.

The vultures look scary but they always fly away when they see me. :)

Me too!

Have a nice summer.

Dina said...

Do those yawls have but one oar each?

A great reflection (oops, wrong meme!).
Have a wonderful summer.

Carolyn Ford said...

I like the reflections and the composition of these 2 cute little boats! And, "yellow" works no matter how many times you use it! I hope you are having a wonderful summer and enjoying LOTS of sunshine!

Levonne said...

That is beautiful. Both of them. I like the compositions! The Camp Host Housewife and Photographer

Always two hands of water beneath your keel. Can't really remember when last sitting in a boat - thank you for this small escape, even if only in thoughts. Please have a great Wednesday.

the first boat is smiling

Gallow said...

It is very hot here right now, and the water looks very inviting. Great colors, and great photos.

Gayle said...

I like the touch of blue at the bottom of the yellow yawl. Judging from the condition of the oar, looks like it's enjoyed many outings.

Life with Kaishon said...

Positively beautiful picture. I just love it.

peripheralperceptions said...

I hope your this, that and the other includes some lazy days in a Yawl with a fishing pole! ;-)

Tumblewords: said...

Gorgeous photos - love the reflections and the colorful 'yawls'. I'd love to have one of them waiting for me at the water's edge.

ChrisJ said...

Oh those are my kind of boats! Loved your joke on my blog about killing two letters with one bird. Very clever!

Barbara Martin said...

Lovely boats and their reflections. Enjoy your summer. I'm already tired of mine: it's been too hot and humid for me. 33C with a humidex of 42C.

Enjoy your summer days, RuneE.

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Hadde gjort godt med en tur på fjorden i sommervarmen som har vært nå ja, men her går det i ved om dagen, vinteren må sikres den også :)

Ønsker dere en riktig god sommer også :)

Cheryl said...

These photos are gorgeous. Yellow is always in season for those of us in colder climes who see it so rarely!

mrsnesbitt said...

So wonderfully calming! Enjoy your summer RunE.

Great photos for this week!

Stopping by from ABC Wed. Beautiful pictures! Nice "Y" words. Thanks for sharing.

EG Wow said...

I enjoy your sense of humour, Rune!

I hope you have a great summer too. :)

Lew said...

Again you have produced superb waer shots! I agree with Mrs Nesbitt: these images are calming. I hope your summer is calm as well. Our summer has decided to be hot - 100+ the past few days.

Trotter said...

Hi Rune! Lovely shots! I wouldn't mind getting around on that... even if it's yellow... ;))

Blogtrotter Two is showing some incredible rocks by the sea... Enjoy and have a great weekend and a great summer!!
