Today’s second #kanji is #泊. Again it has a #さんずいへん（氵）, which indicates some association with water. This time its つくり (the right side of a kanji) is #白, which you can use as its sound indicator. Apparently 泊’s original meaning was a very shallow water which you can see everything through, from which the meaning of “stopping a boat on the water” developed.
Meaning: to stay
外泊（ガイハク）: staying away from home (overnight)
一泊（イッパク）: an overnight stay, a night’s lodging, overnight
宿泊（シュクハク）: lodging, billeting
二泊三日（ニハクミッカ）の旅行（リョコウ）: a trip of 3 days and 2 nights
泊まる（とまる）: (for a person) to stay overnight
泊める（とめる）: to put (somebody) up for the night
