One Old Lady meets Another

The paint has worn out. And there are plenty of nicks on the woodwork, each telling an unforgetable tale. Layers of old paint shed – layers of fresh paint applied – all offering glimpses of a life lived heartily.

With her chin pointing to the sky, she is ready & waiting for the next adventure that the sea and the skies hold for her!

What a pleasure it was to meet the old boat at Caranzalem beach Goa.
