Bouys – love them or leave ’em! Oh, I’m just kidding. I do love me some brightly colored and beat up bouys though. They just seem to scream…”BEACH!” or “NAUTICAL,” don’t ya think? As I shared last year, many of our local residents hang found buoys along their fences, from trees or displayed in their gardens. The bright colors make them easier to see while doing their job, but they add a bit of whimsy to those who collect them for display.
It appears that I’m not the only one who has a little thing for these pieces of nautical history – here’s a nice little collection of buoys from around the Blogosphere.
