Sepia Saturday 193 - alone in a boat

This week's Sepia Saturday post of a person alone in a boat had me rummaging through my vintage postcards to find something on a similar theme. I ended up being surprised that I actually had a few which fitted the bill.

  4. A kind of universal image. It overlooks the rain, the mosquitos, and the wind.

  5. That first card is a real treat. I was going to say the colours of the heather in the water but, after a bit of googling, I realise it is now Ireland rather than Scotland.

  6. Great postcards, and they all are so in tune with the original post! I'm drawn to that Japanese one, but I can't tell you why...

  7. Being out in a boat on the water is a good way to view the spectacular scenery on the first card.

  14. Idyllic boating scenes, although the reality is often rather less than idyllic, as Mike suggests :-)
