Happy Christmas Pictures

Here's an idea. How about publishing some pictures of your marina, mooring, or over wintering place.

Here are a couple of the BRYC in Brussels, with a bit of winter frost on the trees and Christmas cheer in the air.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Brussels keeps it heated, not many marinas do that for you.

Good, I wouldn't want to send any brothers on a bombing run.

Great shots of "seasmoke" Idiens. Reminds me of sunrise photos I took of Newport Beach last year, a morning when temps were in the single digits. The tide was unusually low and ocean water was in the low 30's F, creating an eerie steam effect on the horizon.

Oh... so that wasn't you? Somebody already did... more than once.

Damn, TB, you get some nice shots too.

Here is the Manteo NC docks where I hang. Cam can be seen in the far left edge and the replica ship Elizabeth II which is a big tourist attraction since it brought the FIRST colonists to the new world. (Unfortunately, they vanished leaving Jamestown with the claim of being the first permanent colony...leaving us with the motto "Don't ask the locals for directions...we already lost a colony!" ) Great place...free overnite tieup for boaters!
