Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

You notice that none of these perfect moment pictures, are from when we are at work.

On the northern Gulf of Mexico.

Nobody goes there anymore - it's too crowded.

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.

Yes, but I kind of like the way nice ladies look at me on that crowd. I had only noticed after having taken the photos. Very nice the Italian Ladies, well, to be fair also very nice guys. Italians are really nice people.






Also lots of nice places to take a break too (we have a nice dinner here):





Saying that I am not a big fan of crowds but from time to time and given the solitude we have on the sailboat, it is nice, specially if it is a nice crowd

beautiful but pictures like these really mess me up as I try to remember that perfect is the enemy of good as I do my own refit...
