Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Here is my picture perfect moments from this weekend. I was out all day with the family sailing on our new boat in the rain and my wife had to go home for some studying. I decided to stay the night on the boat and do some fishing. I hadn't singlehanded yet and just planned to motor to my favorite anchorage and hang out. But, after fishing and not catching anything, I really didn't want to hear the motor, so I raised sails and sailed off my anchor for the first time. As a reward I was given an unbelievable evening of sights.

First a sunset to the north as the storm cleared.




And then I turn around and this is what I see the to the south...


What an evening. This was the view as I sailed to my spot for the night. Then to top it all off, as I was sitting with a glass of wine in the cockpit, the nearby town had a fireworks display! Didn't get a picture of that but what a great evening.
