I've written before about our dockside neighbor, Way West Water Taxi, and the colorful people and interesting freight they transport every day. Recently it was the colorful freight that caught my attention. Truckloads of nursery plants were unloaded in the parking lot, wheeled down the ramp in hand trucks or carried by hand. Load after load of pots, flats, hanging baskets and trees began to pile up. This colorful mix stacked along the main dock waiting for a packing wizard to figure out how to fit this large volume of squishable cargo inside a small space. I felt certain it would take more than one workboat to carry that quantity of nursery stock. The main dock was so well decorated that I hoped it would take several days.
