The Legend of Salty Dog
John had spent his lifetime navigating these waters
and he hardly needed the compass to guide him.
Accordingly, he set a course for offshore
and whistled a buoyant tune as they made
way to the fertile fishing grounds.
The energetic little diesel that powered
Salty Dog hummed along in harmony
and pushed them forward to 14 knots.
Jake perched on the foredeck & leaned into the wind.
His long, feathered ears flapped like a pair of wings.
