A Wanderer off course.

McCormack's Boardwalk, next to Fisherman's Cove, is a  popular spot for locals to go for a walk here in Eastern Passage. No two walks are the same as fog and tides roll in and out, and the seasons change.   One thing is always the same -- it's a lovely walk.

But the other day, I saw something I'd never seen before.  It was a boat.

A boat.  Not that there aren't lots of boats in the Cove, but most of them aren't stranded on a sandbar.

"The Wanderer" had been stranded there through several tide cycles.

Not sure how it got there.  I guess it would be an understatement to guess that someone miscalculated.

Boy, her keel was buried pretty deep in the sand.

The next day she was gone.

I love it when cool, surprising things happen.


  1. I think she may have been waiting to give Jiminy Cricket a lift!

  2. Maybe she was brought in by the remnants of Irene? What a lovely spot to be stranded!

  3. Lynne, Jiminy wouldn't have gotten very far on this boat !

    ingebrita, apparently some boaters deliberately beach their boats to paint the hull. I found out that this owner had beached the boat on purpose. He left it beached for two days. Funny thing though, the next day he accidentally ran it aground again, whilst he was drunk.


Thanks for stopping by. I really do love to read your comments.
