Boat Houses On The Ebb Tide

Two emerald green boat houses on the shores of Raglan’s harbour on New Zealand’s west coast.

This is apropos of nothing really ,other than I find this view really calming.

That, and at on an ebb(or low) tide, nothing appears to be happening.

But there is always the promise of the rising tide.

The Boat House

A shot of a boat house sitting serenely over water near my Auckland home.

I am not a boatie or sailor by any stretch of the imagination ,but I admire those who cast off from shore,voyaging ,for adventure on the sea.

So this place appeals to me.

It is by appearance a simple,linear design,with utilitarian function.Boats are stored inside and launched from it.

But it is also the departing place for courage and dreams and happiness, and that makes it magical.
