That's My Buoy!

Day 8 in the 30 in 30 Days Challenge

I loved all of the buoys I saw hanging on walls, resting in piles on the ground and loaded onto trucks  readying for "Trap Day" on our fall trip to Monhegan Island, Maine.  I also loved the reflections of the buoys in the water.  I was told by someone who goes out to Monhegan Island every year to help on Trap Day that you can tell who owns the buoys by their colors.  That was something new to me, but which made such sense once I'd heard it.  So, I wondered about the exact color of this buoy.  It's old and needs to be repainted.  I'm sure it's seen many seasons in the water.  But, I guess that the lobstermen know exactly which ones are theirs and thus the title..."That's My Buoy"!

Love your Buoy Pam, nice reflections!...I also enjoy taking pics and painting them down here on the Chesapeake Bay...I did make it up to Maine and they are similar. I wonder what color or design we would choose if we were lobster or crab/Oyster Ladies? I could see alot of fuscia or flowery ones!
