V/Alphabe-Thursday

Vehicles: boats on the Trent-Severn Canal

V is for VEHICLES

For sure, all three photos in this set are from my archives. Today I need some colour!

Cars and trucks are the obvious vehicles we all use, but this post will feature three others.

The Trent-Severn Waterway isn't open yet this year but will be next month.

Vehicle: bike

Some people are out on their bikes now but not as many as there will be once the  temperature warms up.

Vehicle: wheelbarrow

And only a few wheelbarrows have been out working yet...but many will be out this week.

I am linking to Jenny Matlock at Alphabe-Thursday HERE

Three different types of transport, two for fun, the other for work.

Jill said...

These are wonderful!

Pamela Gordon said...

Great choices for vehicles. It's amazing the number of bicycles and motorcycles that are out already. The boats are still 'tied up' in back yards for now waiting for the high water to go down.

see you there! said...

Like your original take on vehicles. The bike and the wheelbarrow are in use at our place presently.

Two best days with boats... the day you buy, the day you sell. hahahaha

i have fond memories of that last vehicle, daddy had one and i loved to fill it and push it. my sister in law and i used it to haul tons of sand once, and we had so much fun doing it.

This reminds me that I need a new wheelbarrow!

My favorite today is the bike!I'm always trying to capture pictures of bikes when I'm walking around here or in my trips!
Great shots!

Love the Variety of Vehicles - and both captured in glorious sun too, suggesting little adventures ahead for the "rider":)

Marie said...

Such a clever use of V! Loved all your vehicles!

"V"ery nice! I know you can't wait for warmer weather. These are inspirational for sure!

Great V post! :)

DeniseinVA said...

Great trio of photographs. That third one flashed me back to Raindrops are Falling on my head in the old Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid movie.

Granny-Guru said...

I went bike riding last year for the first time in 20 years. I hadn't exactly forgotten, but I had to go very slow:)

edenhills said...

Love the wheelbarrow. Don't see a lot of them anymore.

Jen said...

What a neat challenge. I wouldn't have thought of a wheelbarrow for vehicle. Very creative. Kudos to you.

Susan said...

Love these!

George said...

You highlighted three unique vehicles in this post. Well done!

Randy said...

I would love a boat ride.

Hilary said...

I quite like thinking of a wheelbarrow as a vehicle. Imagine the wild wheelies one could do. ;)

Jim said...

Pretty boats, Ms. T.G. ~~ How do you suppose the get climbed over the wall where they are tying up?

The wheel barrow is my choice of your photos today.

Riet said...

Vehicles, what a good idea. I never thought of those as vehicles but of course they are. Great find for V.

Lola said...

Great take on *Vehicles*– especially the wheelbarrow! Superb photography.

Have a great weekend,

Visiting from Alphabe-Thursday!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

Riding in a wheelbarrow would be so much fun.

Naperville Now said...

adore the wheelbarrow shot! here is to spring and planting and moving around (and not hibernating!)

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

I need to spend a week on the coast and go for a boat ride!

Splendid Little Stars said...

3 great, unexpected vehicles!
I love riding my bike, but it's for fun and exercise, not transportation.
Here' to the hopefully-soon-to-be-here warmer weather!

Kay said...

I'm with you on missing color. I hope you get some springtime weather and color soon. I made a pilgrimage this week to a tulip festival here in Washington state. It felt like I'd fallen onto an artist's palette. Spring in technicolor! Heaven!

Annesphamily said...

Oh how clever these vehicles are! I need to get a bike and ride into the warmer weather! we are struggling with the effects of icy and snowy weather. Still dreaming about Spring! Enjoy your lovely weather and the weekend too!

Lmkazmierczak said...

Love your choices♫ We are getting snow flurries in Chicagoland today...need more color! My V: http://lmkazmierczak.blogspot.com/2013/04/valuable-junk.html
