Waiting

Leaving Cap Sante Boat Haven marina in Anacortes, Washington, you will see the statue of a woman dedicated to all the wives and lovers who have waited for fishermen to return from the sea.

She is holding a lantern high in one hand while resting the other on the head of her child who is clinging to her skirt. Here you can see her against the background of a partly cloudy April sky. -- Margy

  2. Waiting is a lonely task...

    I WONDER WHY

    I wonder why
    Some love the sky
    But not the wind and rain.

    I wonder, friend,
    If sky will end—
    It’s too much for my brain!

  3. What a beautiful statue! It is quite a beautiful and sad tale. I hope her husband will find his way home from sea. Stunning sky watch photo!
