More Strange Sights up North

Holy Island's 
Redundant Herring Fleet
 ~
 Boats turned up-side-down, 
now making 'shabby chic' sheds.
Recycling has been going on 
for ages here,
'make do and mend',
still smelling a bit 'fishy' though!

I was overjoyed at the sight
of these up-turned boats on the seashore, 
they are relics from the past 
adding enchantment to the island,
an atmosphere of ancient times still lingering on.

Oh I love them too! They are wonderful old boats. Why they are so weathered and worn. I cannot imagine how old they are! I adore the dog in the foreground. It just makes the photo. Great sightseeing Sue! You offer us so much history we would never have known about.

The sheds are wonderful -- quirky but practical. But the adorable pup really brings a spot of joy!

The boat sheds are absolutely wonderful and get my imagination going full force! And what an adorable pooch!

This is gorgeous, Sue. I love these beautiful sheds, even though they might be a bit "fishy". What a clever idea!

Hello

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path
as does bright hellos!




Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning.
Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy
feeling all loved up in the
comfort of haiku...



Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...

Happy weekend all haiku lovers...
