CHUTES & LADDERS – DOCKS, PIERS, AND WHARFS

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Chutes and Ladders


Lots of ladders and chutes (ramps) down by the water. This is the marina in Connecticut, a dock in Hyannisport on Cape Cod, and the Tea Party wharf in Boston Harbor.

      You are welcome and thank you for making all this possible! I went and found a few pictures I hadn’t processed. It turns out I have thousands of pictures waiting to be processed. One of these is from archives, but all the others are new. I need to do some searching through my folders!

    Your photos sure take ones mind off the snow outside in the most enjoyable way, Marilyn.

      Thanks. I actually try to do that. We don’t have much snow, but it has gotten very cold and I think it’s just around the corner … maybe tonight or tomorrow. This is when I want to see warm, sunny beaches 🙂

    love your choices for chutes! I didn’t know the boat ladder had another name! 🙂

      It depends on its location in the boat. I think internal ladders are companionways and external ones are ladders, but I could be wrong. I should look it up, I suppose. Okay. I was right. Definition is: Companionway – Noun: A set of steps leading from a ship’s deck down to a cabin or lower deck. So within the ship or boat, it’s a companionway, but coming from the dock to the boat, it’s a ladder.
