Leaving Hong Kong and China for a minute to participate in the Daily Post’s photo challenge. The theme for the day is “Names” and I have always been intrigued by the names people assign to boats and ships. In Seattle, there are some hard-working commercial fishing boats docked at Fisherman’s Terminal. After a lovely seafood dinner at Chinook’s, it is a lot of fun to stroll the docks and admire the boats.
The name “Ricky K” amused me because my father’s name is Richard and his last initial is K.
Other names I saw included: Emancipator, Lady Kate, Deception, Quandary and Quetzal. The toughest naming job I ever had was choosing names for my kids. Other than that, I’ve named some pets and two blogs. I’ll skip the boat-naming gig.
