OK - now I get serious.

How about Quidi Vidi Harbour, Newfoundland.



And the green building where the two sailboats are tied up is the Quidi Vidi Brewing Company.
What more could a sailor ask for?



Certainly not as spectacular as Norway, but still cool.

Nope, no photoshop. Google Reine Norway.

Newfoundland is great. Spent a summer doing the Gaspe, Madelines, Newf, Cape Breton/ Bras d'Or circuit- still wanted to spend more time there. Some of the best cruising in the world, IMHO.

But the picture of Reine is hugely distorted - it needs to be about twice as wide to get back to its proper perspective! Spectacular nonetheless.

Fair 'nuf. Still one of the coolest places to go.

My dream stop one day... and has been on my list from the beginning... is the Maldives Islands.

Far off lands and beautiful beaches.

Monkey Mia near Shark Bay Western Autralia... went there back in the 80's and would love to go back. Dolphins play in the wild there.

For those of you heading to, or in France you can't go wrong with most of the coast of Brittany if you're into celtic-style landscapes.. Rich Druid history too. It's my all-time favourite place - but then I'm biased since I essentially grew up and learned to sail there..

Not my vid, but extremely representative, including the tropical feel you get in some locations..

I can't imagine mastering the skills involved here without a clearer understanding of who's going to be impressed.

Cool Just go where the wind blows

We had a list but we find that the best experiences are the discoveries we did not plan for.

I agree that the best experiences are tose you stumble on. how ever haveing only sailed and been to Key west once I was dissapointed to learn of this mythical garden that I may or may not have walked rite past. Now I want to get back to KW to find this garden. If I pass some place in say the Marquesas it is not that easy to get back no matter how much we may want to.

This is great!

I think this is a great idea and plan to start my own notebook soon. My cruising days are still a few yrs off at this time, but this helps keep me motivated. Two places that will definitely make my list are:

-Nan Madol, Micronesia: a man-made island that was made hundreds of years ago.


-Cocos Island National Park off of Costa Rica
