Enjoyed the photos, BTW!
Ahahahahaha.... good one.

It's amazing how much it looks like a painting! Must be the analog quality of film.

My grandma had a disc camera.

Here are a few more from our Nav Class trip to Cape Lookout. I never did get around to posting Part 2 of that story. Too busy for my own good.

Captain Serious:


The real captain (Chris) catching sharks in the bight:


Blue water sailing... ok we're not out that far but it was in the Atlantic Ocean though. You can barely see the shore in the distance:


Jayme experiencing a bit of weather helm:


Jayme feeding the fish... lol:


Back in the bight... Cape Lookout in the distance:


We're still learning... Capt Chris teaching Jayme how to plot a course:


The Boat we took to Lookout: 2007 Beneteau 423... Baby got beam!




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~

ok... that's all for now. Maybe next batch will be proposal pictures on the deck of the boat. Is is good luck that we were on a starboard tack when i proposed?

I'm assuming the starboard tack was not the only good luck you had, and you received the desired response to the question? (g)

See that steamship in the background? Is it coincidence that she is recognizable to some sailnetters? Yes, that's the ship Giu got his engineering start on. She smoked black like that for years, until he found out there were more than one set of burner tips for the boilers. (vbg)
