Barefoot... tell us more about that great shot!
I don't actually remember where I took it, I just started editing through about 10,000 images taken from sailing the inside passage this spring. It was my last journey with my canine comanion so will go down in the memory banks as the best cruise ever. Every day she woke up to a new beach to explore.

This from our first trip to the Bahamas. Warderick Wells Land and Sea Park is a pretty special place. I took this from the top of Boo Boo Hill, where we left our boat name on a piece of driftwood with all the others.

Amazing picture. Water is never that color in my part of the world.

Re: Why I like this Picture...

Boats are great, family is better. This is a good day on the water in the PNW. I like this photo because of the enjoyment my 16 year old son was having at the wheel.

Re: Why I like this Picture...

Beautiful shot, Ron...

A couple of years after I finished college, I spent the month of August on a bicycle tour of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland... Back in the 70's, I was probably one of the first to ride a bike across Newfoundland, based upon the response I received everywhere I went... People were very intrigued by what I was doing, and I was treated to the legendary hospitality of Newfies, total strangers inviting me into their homes for a meal, or a shower, or a bed or couch to sleep on... Needless to say, I always wanted to return, especially given the most spectacular areas of the island are largely inaccessible by road, a boat is the only way to get around most of the coastline...

It was also the first time I had really done something akin to cruising, and although I'd been sailing since I was a kid, the idea of cruising under sail still seemed like something rather foreign to me, and certainly in a very distant future... After all, the $130 I'd spent on my Peugeot 10-speed was, at that time of my life, was perhaps the second-largest purchase I'd ever made to date, exceeded only by the $225 I'd paid for my trusty Saab 92... ;-)

Well, several years ago, I finally made it back out to The Rock, on my own boat, under sail... I had a perfect passage across the Cabot Strait from Port St Lawrence on the northern tip of Cape Breton Island, and this spot called The Squid Hole was the first of many beautiful anchorages I was to enjoy on that cruise... There were others far more spectacular as I headed to the deep fjords further east, but that evening in the Squid Hole will always be a special one for me, representing what it did in a long overdue return to a place I'd fallen in love with decades earlier...

Lots of great shots.

This image shows(me), what I love about sailing.

Sailing is an enjoyable and uncomplicated state of mind in a complex world.

Re: Why I like this Picture...

Beautiful, Tom, on many levels.

This was taken on our first trip to the Caribbean, and on a (rare) spinnaker run.. pretty much DDW from Jolly Harbour Antigua to Nevis/St Kitts. The remarkable blue water here was breathtaking, esp when seen for the first time.

Not here on the Gulf Coast either. The water in the Bahamas is a big draw for us.

Although I love beautiful, clear water and sandy beaches, I admit that pics of cruising boats in high latitudes are breathtaking. But, I don't like anything below about 70*, so I'll just enjoy other's photos.

Sometimes, nature spices things up with colors. Not such a great setting, but couldn't resist a photo of how the sun lights up the hulls with a storm close by -

Guest dock at Everett marina in WA, on our delivery cruise after the purchase. I just loved the geometry. Reminded me of when you have two mirrors facing each other.
