My own itty bitty garden
there! see it? in the right hand corner: green! its a plant. its growing. stay tuned for updates. slow ones.
and lets see, more vocabulary lessons:
binnacle shelf: the horizontal area where the boat controls, dials, doohickies, etc are located. Examples include the compass, the windshield wipers. Actually, some research indicates that the binnacle is the what the compass sits in. In common usage perhaps this is expanded to include the shelving area around the compass.
egress: an exit
sea cock: the valve that controls flow of seawater into the boat. for instance, on our boat, a sea cock controls the flow of water from the bay to the fire hose. (no giggling please)
