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.
