Where the Buoys Are

Esbee at Wordaholism wistfully described a memory of Maine yesterday:
The cool mist on my face reminded me of days in Maine when the fog was so dense I couldn't see the ocean across the street. I could hear the buoys, though, ringing softly to tell boats to keep seaside of them.

The lobstermen's buoys were my favorites. They had no bells, but they were brightly painted in each lobstermen's color and stripe pattern. Ropes underneath the buoys led down to the traps themselves, sitting on the sea floor. [Link]

My favorite, growing up, was always the foghorn. I need more foghorns in my life.

Maybe you could pick one up on eBay.

On second thought, your neighbors might not be pleased...
