Sitting on the dock of the bay, wasting time

Wasted time and too much waste

Not all docks are actually pretty.Not all boats sits on azure blue , clear waters, most probably there are no fishes there to catch, only plastic to collect.Most of these boats are actually abandoned, perhaps purposely, since they are too many of them to maintain.These sights are not that reaches to the ´gram thing, not the touristy spot as well.

Just an ordinary dock, with ordinary things to see.

Or the fishermen went on vacation and got another job…?

Not all dockways can be freely roamed. It´s right there but then you cannot cross the line. It´s closed for public padlocked and no trespassing sign is posted, so it´s actually only for the eyes.

More thoughts while sitting on the dock of the bay, wasting time

I don´t know but whenever I see bodies of water, a small lake, river or a beach, this song is in my head,–“Sitting on the dock of the Bay” by Ottis Redding.

A perfect way to kill time is watching boats docked in the bay, boats and small yachts gliding through the soft waves, and dancing jazzly with the waters; sometimes although not really intended, people watching.With boats,I got fascinated by it so much , probably because I have been exposed to see many boats in the past years of my life. Big or small, huge and tiny, colorful, made of wood, modern and traditional, they are all wonder to me.

But nothing beats it when you actually ride one, right?

Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes
Watching the ships roll in
Then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah
-Otis Redding (Sitting on the Dock of the Bay)

When a boat is not on the water and only sitting on the dock for touristic purposes, does it mean that it´s journey has ended? It´s still a boat as it is, but never sails,probably would never touch the waters again. Is it the same for cars displayed in museums? Are they cars that has engines that never roars?

The great Dhow docked in Arabian Gulf

Maybe the people who sits by the bay has the same thoughts as I am.

Or what about throwing a bottle with a letter inside, to reach out in another world?

The view is nice but I´d rather rest and take a breather…

Or waiting for boarding…

In the end, everyone wants the front row seat and have their own private time to waste some time…
