Bow Watch by Keith R Wahl, Made From RI Gallery
(Select Image or Title To See In A Larger Format)
Into each life, some rain must fall, especially if your life is on an island ferry. Along with the rain come bow watches, wet windows, and rolling ships.
This is ferry and island life. The islanders and the crews grow accustomed to these sea conditions. Tourists will grumble with these conditions, but they need only wait. There is a clearing over the island fine on the starboard bow. But for now, the views of bulwarks and capstans forward are rain-covered. And we can tell you that they are playing jazz, perhaps Ella, at a classic island hotel restaurant.
