Grey had been fishing for many, many years. Still to this day you would always find him with a pipe in his mouth, fishing on his old boat simply named, “Dahlia.”

She dreamed of one day owning her own boat, and sailing the seas with her sidekick Simon the cat. But the things she saw from the porthole in her room, help her from leaving the submarine.

Seasick, Yet Still Docked

seasick, yet still docked
This dock has a longer piece, that apparently they haven’t put back on this year.

 Ok, I totally borrowed that title from Morrissey, but it was the only thing that kept running through my head today as I shot these photos. I love everything nautical. Well, not for me but for Anna. The past 9 birthdays have had nautical themes…or at least she’s worn a nautical-inspired dress or outfit. (The Hello Kitty cake request almost launched the nautical theme overboard on her 8th birthday…) Anna doesn’t appear to mind it, in fact she’s requesting origami boats and Hello Kitties on her birthday cake this year. I think I can create something like that. =)

I was pleased the wind picked up.
longing to be at sea
That’s actually a lake, since we’re in Western PA, but shhh.

The Sailor

He wanted to be a sailor

He wanted to be a sailor… I love painting nautical kitties, it might have to do with the fact that I was once in the Navy. =P

Sailor Cats

s.s. meow

Just a few paintings of cats sailing the seven seas. I was going to add one of my own Navy photos, but maybe I’ll just keep it all sailor kitties. Happy Friday!
