Dock Culture

I like to joke around with my husband that we are hippies for choosing to liveaboard.  That was - until a few weeks ago we were put in our suburbia raised place.  

Don't get me wrong - our friends from the city think we are CRAZY.  Not just choosing a "different path" - CRAZY.  

We were sharing our almost nightly walk on the docks when I pointed out a couple to my husband, "... is THAT a GOAT?" (thinking that I am pointing out an odd looking dog ... or something)  

Yes - a goat on leash, on the docks.

Apparently, according to locals I have consulted, there is a couple (we have not met them) - that has a miniature milking goat and two laying hens ON.THEIR.BOAT.  Those are some earthy liveaboards - they have us beat.  I would love to get a picture of their set up.

Anyhow - tangent over - 

We were pleasantly surprised, last night, by a bag piper playing on the bow of a boat moored down the dock from us.  I was able to get a short video of him playing:

We love meeting cruisers that are passing through.  The cruising community is so welcoming and accepting and you get to experience unique and unexpected moments like this right from your home.
