What is "Schickelfritz"? It is a word of Germanic origin that is of endearment. It is how one would refer to a child as a "scamp" or "rascal". It refers to innocent, if lively, activity that makes one smile.

The views displayed here of the "Upper Pond" (Point Judith Pond). It is a place that I have rounded many times in various boats. It is on a course leading to one of my favorite marinas, in fact. And the name of the boat of that marina's late owner was "Schnickelfritz".

As the sun creates a playful setting of light, the memory of an old boat, a kind old boatswain's mate all come to mind. And from a conversation that I had at this spot; it is a shared experience.
