Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

You can get ash falling a long, long way away from an eruption. When St. Helens blew (admittedly a lot bigger) it turned day into night and dropped ash FEET deep hundreds of miles away. It was forming into drifts 1/2 way across Washington state.

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.

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

If you guys liked Rhodes photos (and the place) I guess you would like Simi, where FOR hundreds of years were made the fastest sailboats on the planet, included one of the most famous ever: Argos, the original one.

Little boat, little waters. Beached on Lake Juliette in central Georgia this weekend for a picnic.

This happened, beginning at 0300, on 08/29/2014 in Rabaul, PNG. Mt. Tavurvur is the offending volcano.

No danger from hot lava falling on the boat but golf ball size pieces of tephra rained down (hence the hat went on at 0330!) Below are some links about the eruption, one from the NY Times and one is to a crew member's video and flickr page. just spectacular! however, the cleanup continues, and will continue for the forseeable future. ash gets EVERYWHERE. perfect excuse for me to get off my duff and rebuild winches...

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

There have been many. But I came across this one last week...The good part is after the 8:00 mark.


After looking through this thread, the tropics are starting to look attractive again though...

Paulo, I think we spent time in some of the same places this summer - the eastern Med is wonderful.

Very nice pictures. Yes it seems so. Yes on those parts it is always windy, that's what limit the number of boats and make the hot days agreeably cool.

I suppose you charter a boat? if you liked that next time charter from Naxos and sail the little Cyclades. Not the ancient architecture but traditional villages great (almost) deserted anchorages much less sailboats and much nicer prices on restaurants. Off course it is even probably more windy

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

This isn't such a great picture, but, it represents what was a great solo sail for me the other day. The boat was perfectly balanced, and I was romping along back to the harbor in Milwaukee.
