This foto comes compliments of Lauren Tivey, a poet from Vermont College of Fine Arts.  Question:  where/what?   Note the person in doorway just behind the lion “figurehead.”  Answer below.

Since my goal here is to post unexpected fotos, enjoy this shot of the befigured Patty Nolan, a unique tug itself towing something different last summer.

Behold the sixth boro’s own Dal Lake or Sausalito or Lake Union.    Guess where?

Behold the glorious Gowanus!

And some of its exotic fauna.

These last three fotos come compliments of intrepid paddler Vladimir Brezina, whose fotos have appeared here, among other places.

Lauren’s foto at the top is a restaurant on a barge on West Lake in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province . . . just south of Shanghai.

If you must travel this weekend or summer, be safe.  And you might consider taking your house with you . . . either the actual house or some some of it.  You house needs to get out.  It might be tired of the same scenery all the time, or

the same neighbors, lawn,  or landscaping.

Your house walls hear you talking about the big city . . . well, it may just want to see it once.

It may have heard you talk of large elegant houses that float . . . like Norwegian Epic, and might desire to catch a momentary even blurry glimpse of such miraculous things.

Your house might seek adventure and stay out all night!  See where the wild side leads.

It might crave a sunrise in a most unimagined location.

If so, get in touch with Patty Nolan . . .  the tugboat with the figure figure.  No, she didn’t get a new bikini for this season, but who cares.  She’s one prodigious guide.

More later.  I’m away, and so may be our houses, hausmann and hausfrau.   Please be safe whatever the reason for your travel . . . be it distraction, catchup, business, work, pleasure.  See you soon.

Any resemblance to events or persons or houses is only coincidental.  If you saw something like this, it was possibly a mirage.
