When we cruise we have specific destinations we'd like to get visit. If we don't get to all of them - that's OK... but we're usually going from specific place to specific place. We're not really into desolate and quiet anchorages. We'd prefer to sail to someplace that we can walk around and see the sites. For example, when we were in Maine - Booth Bay, Rockland, Camden and Monhegan Islands were all places we wanted to visit. But we love to sail, and you can't beat the price of the fuel, so we have a sailboat. But when cruising, sailing is our mode of transportation, not the reason we're out there.

On the other hand, when we're just going out for the day, we just go wherever the wind takes us and then back to our slip. In that case, we're sailing because we love it!
