Check out the name plate . . . Davis Sea.  Yup, it’s THAT Davis Sea as captured less than a week ago by John Skelson.  Two months ago, I got a foto of Davis Sea looking like this (third foto down).

And from Pam Hepburn, THIS is what I spotted alongside Linda G, back in mid-February.  It’s a Kori pontoon marsh buggy, working here along the Kills.

Here back at the dock, it’s transitioning from barge to terrafirma, not terra marsha.

I don’t generally go to the water to watch birds, but you can’t hang along the water long without seeing all manner of birds, solo or

in multiples or even

exponentials.  Here’s an old post about these floating featured things.  Of course, birds aren’t the only animals I see.  How about ponies

like this one?  And maybe here’s the rider

that chose to venture out solo.

And alien orbs . . . with Scott Turecamo and a turbine in the distance . . .

And then there’s HarvestDome, an ethereal orb coming to the waters this summer.  And if you want to contribute to getting this completed and afloat, click here.

Click here and here for stories on a huge piece of flotsam currently on the western Indian Ocean.

And finally, from the Argus-eyed bowsprite, what’s this?  This sailboat  . . . is it cargo or has this creative captain traded in the usual orange lifeboat for a higher-performance ride back to terra firma for a little déjeuner sur l’herbe a la Manet  should it be desired?

Happy March!  And seriously, consider chipping in some dinars or ducats to help float Harvest Dome this summer.  The link is here.
