Hang ON!



Not your average boat and not the average use for one. It's just hanging there. Following are photos of the rope holding it up.
9 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work:
10 If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!



11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone?

12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12


Photos taken at Selby Gardens, Sarasota Florida

The boat is very interesting but it is the rope that really caught my attention. Whoever did the braiding and finish work did a great job. They took their time, bound the ends and sealed them with wax to prevent fraying, it is beautifully done.

I taught outdoor survival skills many years ago with rope work as part of the course. I taught a simple version of this technique, it takes patience.

Great Bible verse to go with some fantastic photos :-)

Interesting photos and great illustration of that Bible quote.

At first I thought it was a giant rolling pin. The pretty red designs on it look aborigional. And it looks like the ends of the rope were painted to match the boat designs, but I'm sure the answer isn't that simple. Now I'm hungry for pie.

Wonderful close up photos Sandra and great quotes, indeed!

Did you ever find out what the boat/canoe was used for? Planter, swing?

I love the rope photos Sandra; it looks like a lot of work went in to making it. Have a good weekend!

Loved the boat but the rope really pulled me in! How very true it is that we cannot stand alone. I'm so thankful our family became like a rope during the loss of my Daddy last week.

Ya'll have a magnificently blessed 'fall' weekend!!!

I like the scripture you have coupled with these fascinating photos.

The photos are great, and I love the verse!

I need to get some tips from you. When I put a link in my blog, it doesn't show up unless I run my cursor over it. I've gone to the template thingy and tried changing colors, but they don't change.

Neat little boat, Sandra... But the way they weaved that rope is awesome... You related it so well to the Bible verses... SO creative...

Have a good weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy
