Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Sorry, I've posted this pic elsewhere too, but it fits the theme.. a beautiful early spring day, nice stiff beat out of the bay, with our son, daughter-in-law and 4 yr old granddaughter in our wake - it doesn't get much better (well... could have been a bit warmer!)

jrd22, PCP and Bilgewater like this.

A good day on English Bay is always nice. It's a given though that one of two statements will apply - "it could have been a bit warmer" OR "we could have used a bit more wind".

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Great photo Faster. You make me envious. I have not any sailing photos of my boat. I have nobody to take them. I have plenty of nice photos of my motorcycle racing days. Maybe I have to do some racing to have nice photos of my next boat

So the only thing I can offer is photos of nice places. This one is from Ria de Muros, Galicia. The photos were taken from Muros a nice and small fishing town.

Talking about Muros I remember not only sailing pleasure but also gastronomic pleasure: Pulpo a Galega and Albarinho wine....I have to come back there even if by car.

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

The color of this water is burned into my memory. It's from my first sail as Skipper, off the coast of Long Key, Florida, US

Porto Colom - Maiorca 2011

Porto Colom is one of those rare perfect natural Ports. You have protection no matter the wind and it is big enough to have place always for one more boat. It is also one of those perfect spots were you don't have to pay to lay your anchor. There is a touristic town and also the old town (on the end of the cove) with its old and inexpensive shops and bars and no tourists. A favorite place.

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

I've heard that a picture is worth a thousand words. Priceless thread. I hope every day I come to SN there are new additions. One needs no more inspiration to sail off over that horizon. More please...
