One Word Photo Challenge: Lemon

This photo was taken today (on my Nokia smartphone) for Jennifer’s One Word Photo Challenge: Lemon. I was busy cleaning (at work) when Mr R reminds me that the Lake Eppalock Gold Cup is on this weekend. He insists I come into the other room where he could see a boat from a window. So, grudgingly, I do and am glad I did. I’m amazed. I imagined I was about to see an oversized sleek speedboat, not something shaped like a spacecraft. And then, something about it hits me. Lemon, the boat is lemon! Perfect for Jennifer’s challenge.

After looking at the Victorian Speed Boat Club’s website, I find this ‘boat’ is called HBR, and is a 1.6lt Hydroplane, with a 1.6lt Toyota Twin Cam Engine.

I nearly settled for showing you wattle again, from earlier in the year.

    Definitely looks like it should be hovering in the air, not skimming the waves

      LOL. It won at Glenmaggie recently, but sounds like it only happened because the top boat damaged a pontoon. 😀


  4. Great choice, but I bet it’s not really a in the water, right? (lemon here means it doesn’t work 100%, is corrupted in some way) 😀 😀 😀

      That other sort of lemon means the same here, too, Tess – something that keeps on breaking down from the day it was made, usually a car. 😀

      I love the look of it, but not enough to bother going to the boat racing. 🙂
