A Word A Week Challenge- Boat

After a hiatus, it’s back in my life, A Word a Week Challenge on A Word in Your Ear!

Boat. One of the first words a child latches on to in utter fascination. That marvellous object that bobs upon the water, that potentially carries us far away, into the realm of adventure. As grown ups, of course, we associate a boat with serenity, a welcome lack of anchor for a while, before the rhythm of life reclaims us. Here is a collection of boat pics from various travels…

  1. Mukta ji,mai kal hi soch raha tha,aajkal aap ka blog roz dekhne ko nahi mil raha hai…isi tarah likhti rahiye..

    • Yea. You never know what will happen next to places you visit. We were in Istanbul last year, now there are public protests rocking the city. In Uttarakhand, devastation. Pictures tell stories beyond what lies within the frame, no?

      • Yeah, it does. Thousand of stories unfolding itself and they speak the language of love and emotions:) I always have the problem of missing the people and places I connect with through pics. It’s like terrible:(
