One Word Sunday

Whatchamacallit

When I read the prompt for One Word Sunday: Whatchamacallit I had a couple of ideas for the challenge.

My first thought was a photo of a calliope, a steam powered fairground organ. That was followed by thoughts of old farm equipment. Then I thought about some recent photos featuring the dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

Mostly I have seen or heard it called the government dock but it’s also known as the public dock, the pier and simply the dock. I don’t know why it’s known as the government dock or why no one seems entirely sure what it should be called.

Thanks Susan. The photo was taken last Monday morning and when I posted a different version on a local Facebook group the comments used most of the local names for it. That’s probably what gave me the idea for the post.

Thanks Graham. I’m going to continue calling and captioning it as the government dock even if no one can explain why it’s called that.
