Shopping By Boat/Rural Thursday

Returning with groceries

This shopper needed the boat to get groceries. I guess her husband or kids had the car.

Or maybe the store was on an island. You know, one of those island stores. The Pirate Shop. Right?

I definitely like the idea of shopping by boat!

Danielle said...

Sounds like shopping in our neck of the woods...I would love to live on an island and have to go by boat to the mainland to get some shopping done. How awesome that would be....although I might would like a better boat ;)

Tricia Hays said...

Colors & clarity, wonderful... but, are we sure the dock is safe? =)

Shopping by boat sounds like fun.... on a sunny day.... but I don't think I'd like it quite so much on a rainy windy day. I'd send someone else to the store then!

Can't you just see dropping your groceries while getting them in your boat???

Paul in Powell River said...

Lovely scene! And there isn't much choice if you live on an island.

Sandra said...

Sandra said...

Randy said...

Online shopping is really great way to buying any products easily in home. You can giving more suggestion about shopping.

RedPat said...

I have a couple of friends with cottages on islands and the boat is like their car. Not nice in bad weather.

Elisa said...

When my daughters go shopping, I´d prefer to go that way. It´s surely more fun!

Ellie said...

That is certainly one way to do your shopping. I just get my local supermarket to deliver it to my door :)

Oh wow how fun that would be!

Very pleasant looking "parking lot" and the reflections are gorgeous.
