Summer Stock Sunday #7

"Did Someone Call For David Hasselhoff?"
Atlantic Beach, NC - July 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Summer Stock Sunday Graciously Hosted by Robin at

Updated: Since so many people have asked "What is that?" I thought a video demo might be in order. You'll see this item at 0:16 of the video. Except in this case, it's just hung on a post in the middle of the beach, not in a lifeguard tower. (Plus, my image is a lot sharper!)

I don't mind Hasselhoff ! I don't know what it is - but looks cool and summery :)

Umm....what is this? I do love the reds and the white background. Maybe I'm just a little dense today.

This is a bumper buoy that boats put between the wharf and the boat, to stop damage if they hit, I think. Intriguing photo. Wheres the boat?
Not sure where Hasselhoff comes into it? I am also a bit dense today.

Very nicely composed photograph.

Wishing you a scent-sational Sunday!

Does it come with a cute lifeguard too? (Not Hasselhoff though, ick.)

They don't use those here. Lifeguards on Israeli beaches have these big stand-upon surfboard things called hassakehs that they pole around on.

I am on the island this past month and the guards can't ever leave their stations without one in their hands. Good shot!
