I’ve been contemplating posting this photo for a while but truthfully, I don’t know what to say about it other I saw it on two occasions while driving on northern Prince of Wales Island. Originally, I thought it was a logger’s boot, perhaps tossed out the window in a drunken rage or dropped off the back of a truck. After reexamining the photo, it looks more like a fishermen’s boot with the camo print, probably dropped while heading back to the rig, gear in tow.
Along comes a kind soul and places it atop the “O” Mile sign. How thoughtful.
I wonder if anyone ever claimed it? I wonder what stories that boot would have to tell. Must be lonely sitting there waiting for another chance for a vehicle to drive by, waiting for your other half. Or if you are like me, I would plant flowers in it. Which reminds me of some other photos I have to share. But that’s a story for another day.
