Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Where Brittany meets Normandy: This is the only time I really wish I had an OVNI. It should be just wonderful to stay there on the sand, sheltered by the old monastery, after the tourism crowd went away, and truly enjoy the magic of this old sacred place.

You have to post the picture on an outside site (I use photobucket) and then post the link of the photo here. Till a limit it is free. you can go to my post, quote it and see the link on the picture from an account on photobucket.

To clarify.. using Photobucket.com be sure to copy and paste the IMG CODE linking option, otherwise just a link will show in the post. You can also choose a 'auto resize' setting for posting, saves having to play around with your image sizes before posting.

One other thing.. I believe images loaded using SN's methods are only visible to logged-in members.. using Photobucket allows lurkers to see the images as well.

Downeast- nice pics. Blackburn would have just had someone lash his stumps to the oars and started rowing.

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Thanks jrd22,

It is almost incomprehensible that Blackburn did several solo transatlantic crossings in small boats, wrapping the sheets around his waist, leaning back against the line pressing his arm against it to sheet it in! An amazing story. He sailed out of Gloucester. They celebrate him with a small human powered boat regatta every year. 400 or so boats paddle and row the 20 miles around Cape Anne and raise their glasses in his honor at the finish party. It is on our annual to do list.

Gloucester is a worthy destination.

Gloucester is a worthy destination. Down
Stories like Blackburn, the crews of square riggers rounding the Horn, Grand Banks fishermen etc. always make me wonder how they didn't die in wholesale lots from hypothermia.

Just imagine running up & down the rigging BAREFOOT in one of those ships rounding the Horn in winter. They never got dry, they never got warm - how did they avoid it? Hypothermia is no respecter of "toughness" - I've witnessed many Iron Man competitors get hypothermic after a short time in 70 degree lake water and those people are physically about as tough as it gets.

Is there a doctor in the house?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

No, but I am a bit surprised nobody had asked what was that magic place. Did you have understood so quickly? I mean the last photos and this one?



Or you just have read the name on the address of the photo?
