Of Boats and Fossils

This fresco reminds me of a wonderful old boat I saw embedded in a sea wall somewhere on Crete, probably Chania, like a fossil boat in limestone.

Which reminds me in turn of a) the fossil fish which used to sit on my piano, and now sits under the octagonal "ship's" window in the hallway; and b) the characters gathering fossils in Lime Regis in The French Lieutenant's Woman.

All by way of woolgathering—my favorite activity.
