These two are much older now, but there's nothing like the 'thrill of the treasure chest' at Pirate's Cove Marine park for the youngsters...

Actually, many avoided the shame and went down under. In spite of not having a criminal record, they were let in.

This thread is about pictures!! Brother XII



Back to the regular programming.... and please join in.

I like this one because it's typical of our granddaughter's happiest times, exploring a BC beach....

On the last day of the 2015 USPGA Open held at Chambers Bay in University Place (my home town) we decided to sail down and join the gaggle of boats standing off the exclusion zone in front of the course. We had a great spinnaker run South through the Narrows to the course.

The one in the hat trimming the spinnaker is my Mom. She knows more about sail trim than I ever will, and although she spends most of her time hiking and kayaking now, she spent the afternoon keeping my spinnaker pulling well.

She turned 81 last May.

Very likely - WL was the usual "length" used BITD. That would typically put the LOA around 43' for those long ended boats.

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.

OMG is that ever pretty. This wins!

Re: Why I like this Picture...

This picture was taken at sunset anchored behind Masonboro Island, NC during a Mac Rally, right after we came back in the inlet and dodged a rainstorm

All 5 boats were beached/anchored stern to shore to allow easy walking access to the campfire on the beach.

I really like the orange and purple sunset in the background with the walking trail leading to the boats in the foreground.
