Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Lots of cities founded on great natural ports. Vancouver certainly is one of them, Lisbon another and Porto our second city even if it cannot rivaled in port size with Lisbon and Vancouver was so important in older times that is the only city I know that is only called simply port. Porto means in Portuguese port.







Curiously today the port is only used by Tourist boats that go up the river and only now a Marina is being built on the other side of the river.

Paulo

Fog settling in, probably one the scariest moments aboard. It ended up so think you could barely see five feet, but you could hear the ships all around. Pretty unsettling.

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

April 28, 2012 (yesterday)

The green spinnaker tried to take our wind from close behind us (note our backstay in the top right part of the photo) and ended up totally buggering up their chute. They dropped behind and never caught up to us again. It was one of those perfect racing moments.


These other photos show just what a perfect Puget Sound sailing day it was:

Thanks, but I have been posting pictures of all South of Europe. Yes it is a beautiful place but I would not say I live there;, not even in Porto the one I have posted the last pictures (actually that time i was there with my boat).

Born in Lisboa that is a very beautiful place but I lived most of my live here:



In that peace of land that goes inside the sea. It is called Baleal and it was an old fishing village, particularly whales (Baleal means the the place of the whales). Of course that was so many centuries ago that it is very rare to see one there now. I have posted several photos from Baleal and I still have there a summer small house. Now I live on the country, near by in a place called Coimbrã.



Baleal is really a very beautiful place:



The old Chapel:





And it can be pretty savage sometimes with 25ft waves crashing against these rocks:



Now I still have a view for the sea, but I live on the countryside:



Regarding beauty, Canada is one of the places I want to go, particularly to British Columbia. One of the few regrets I have was not have managed to find the money to go there 20 years ago, on a dirt motorcycle tour, kind of a sportive event, camping in the middle of the nature. I was invited, they would had a motorcycle for me and the logistics to have food and gasoline on the wilderness, for me and 5 more riders. I bet that is forbideen now

Regards

Paulo

Not at all - bikes are huge here. There are large parts of the interior - about the size of Texas - that are wonderful dirt bike country. The Okanagan valley, where I grew up, is Napa north now - wine country - but it's loaded with rolling grassland and pine forested mountains - the most perfect dirt bike country you can imagine.

The coast, not so much. Dirt bikes aren't much fun in rain forest and rocks.

Nope, at least up here in Alaska you can still go out in the backcountry with a motorcycle (or snow machine in winter) and camp and see country that very few ever see. You can spend as much time as you can manage to support yourself.

Here is one of those perfect moments when all the water was in a solid state, as it is here for 7 months a year. Denali (otherwise known as Mt. McKinley) is in the background. 20K feet tall, the tallest in N. America. We camp very close to here for days in the winter.



EDIT: SloopJ, good to hear that you can still do the same over in BC. Sledding is kinda big there too.

Yes, Dubrovnik is something. It seems you leaved the boat in the marina? That is really the only minus of Dubrovnik: No matter what you do you have to pick a bus. The marina is some kms away and no way of anchoring nearby, unless you have a super yacht with a hundred meter chain. It is also not always easy to find a place in the marina that is on the industrial part of the city.

For the ones that want a more peaceful location and want to stay out of the marina I recommend Slano a small village on a big cove 30kms North of Dubrovnick. Very good all around shelter, sand bottom, very few boats, a nice place with lots of Bus to Dubrovnick. If I remember right a bit more than half an hour.

Some more pictures of a place that more than deserves a visit.
