The boat that I row

Posted by dobbino (Cape Town, South Africa) on 8 December 2008 in Transportation and Portfolio.

The boat that I row won't cross no ocean
The boat that I row won't get me there soon
But I got the love and if you got the notion
The boat that I row is big enough for two
That's me and you
Title and lyrics from the song "The boat that I row" by Neil Diamond

Lovely picture postcard shot! So clear and the colour of the boat just springs out at you! Cool!

I would think it difficult to row that boat anywhere. You would be blinded by the stunning colour.

@JJ: Thanks JJ - must admit that sometimes I also haven't thought the songs for a long while, and then they just go round and round in my head after posting the titles - I'm really glad you are enjoying.
