  7. I am sitting here in NH ~ hazy, hot, humid ~ and am just going to sit in front of your photo and imagine the sea breeze, cool on my skin and the wind whipping around. I feel cooler already - thanks Sandy!

  8. Great shot Sandy! I remember as a teen sailing to Shackleford Banks with a family before they had ferries that went there. It was great because almost no one went there back then so it was mostly the horses and a few people with boats. We camped and also slept on the boat for over a week and the big thing was shrimping at night. We brought huge coolers of shrimp we caught in the nets back with us. Ah memories. It's fun for me to come here and feel like I'm visiting a neighbor.

  20. Reminds me of when I go to visit England's Isle of Wight.
    I'd rather watch one than sail in one!

  31. If it weren't illegal, you'd want to add Enya's, "Sail away, sail away!" to it.
    My Muskoka has a dearth of sailboats, many motoboats!

  32. wow that is cool like it...Happy WW!

  33. It does look like very calm sailing trip.

    Quite a coincidence. I was in South Carolina over the weekend, and my WW features some images from there.

  34. What a perfect shot. Classic triangle composition and monochromatic color = *sigh* of delight.

  35. I have been sailing on a tiny little boat. Even though it was tiny it was fun. I can't imagine being out on a large boat like this in the ocean. It must be awesome. It is so to just see photos of it.

    ReplyDelete
  36. What a lovely ship you've captured it well. Those waves look pretty amazing as well!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Something about sailboats; they bridge past and present. Classic but always fresh.
