Y. Yolanda's yacht.

Yolanda would be able to read the message on the Frankston pier - no worries!
I’ve got a young friend named Yolanda, she yearned for a yellow yacht and last year bought one from a Japanese gentleman for a lot of Yen. They celebrated with bottles of Yellingbow and a hunk of yearling on the barbeque.
Yellow yacht at Flinders, moored for Easter.
Yolanda named the yacht “YIPPEE!”

Yolanda yodels enthusiastically. Some of the crew – all youths - say it sounds more like the yelp of a yak, and use the work “Yuk”. Yolanda says it helps her yank more strongly on the yardarm, though a yeoman of yesteryear may give her a run for her money and yield a better result.
Yellow yacht and motor boat at Flinders last week. Yippee indeed!
Yachts at Mornington. Very low Easter tide.
Here tomorrow: Zero

A Drabble is a story told in 100 words. No more, no less.

Over at traverselife, I've spent the month looking at different aspects of bullying.

Jan, oooh, a seed planted! You never know where that could lead ;)

Nova Scotia?


baygirl, great for someone who's a competent sailor! I like watching them bobbing around. At anchor. In calm water.

oh by golly I'm winding down really fast now. I've had enough...only one more, thank goodness.

The first is undoubtedly my favorite with this spectacular view, very beautiful. Greetings.

How fun! I would so love a yacht or even a dingy. I am not that picky.

Leovi, thanks, the sea was so calm that day, it was so peaceful and still.
Daffenah, something small would be fine, a row boat or kayak just to bob around in not far from shore!
Hilary, I wrote the drabble first than realised I didn't have a photo. We went for a walk Easter Day and there it was waiting for me!
