Boats on Monday

Small boats used by local fishermen at Gotland, Sweden, in the Baltic seas. Small boats like these and simular types have been used in the Nordic countries for centries. If you look closely, you might recognize the shape from the Viking Ships.

Boats on Mondays --- why not?Just present ONE photo. And tell with some short words - ---
Mar was first out this week.

You don't see many boats like this anymore. I love the way you captured the old wooden boats on the shore.

You do understand why I couldn't have just ONE boat in my post today hah? *giggles*

I just had to get rid off it from the drafts even, it were holding down my whole blog... *giggles*

I wonder if it may be my longest post ever....

I wouldn't mind paddling about in a lovely boat like that. Of course, not in this rain we are having tonight. I promise to keep it all here. ;-)

For small boats like this we call them 'sampang' in Malay :D

I did recognize it; in fact, I thought it WAS an old one. Silly of me to think something that old would still be lying on a beach!!
