Norma-K III, Point Pleasant, NJ

Along the boardwalk where the ships dock in Point Pleasant,
these beautiful mini lighthouses decorate the way.

A few weeks back I stopped to photograph the larger ships,
and I decided to also take pictures of these decorative lighthouses.

I had never seen this ship before
 "Swaggy B - Toms River NJ" 
Not a regular here, perhaps it had stopped for maintenance or fuel.

As I was "running" around with my camera, I noticed the 
Norma-K III 
a commercial fishing boat/party boat, was docked and getting painted.
I was invited on board to take pictures and chat for a few...
I think the hubs feel asleep while I was gone, 
it was that long.
When I disappeared inside, he thought I had been kidnapped.

What a thrill, for me anyway!

It was super cool being inside the boat, I get seasick  
so docked and not rocking is best for me.

There was a lot of wood from the original boat,
I wish I had asked them how old the boat is.

This cool picture was at the back of the boat.

- there are two ways of spreading light, to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it -

That last picture of the NormaK with someone superimposed in the background is strange. Did you ask what that meant, Debbie?

Leanne Coppola said...

That's fun to see inside without getting queasy. You are reflecting the light in that photo of the boat's poster! Maybe you were a sea captain in a previous life? LOVE the dock's lighthouses to guide the way. Glad you weren't kidnapped by pirates! Linda in Kansas

That is so cool to get a private tour. (I'm glad the boat didn't leave the dock while you were on board!)))). What fun -- thanks for sharing; the boat is a beauty!

that was a neat idea to have the lighthouses along there. That is so cool you were able to go aboard that boat, I had to laugh about your hubby falling asleep, mine does after church when I am talking with everyone :)
