Re: My two 2017 Fog Pictures
That's not fog! lol
We spent 5 days where we couldn't see the bow of an 80' boat from a midships pilothouse between Shelburne, Nova Scotia and the Ten Thousand Islands area. The lockmasters' commands were just disembodied words filtering down from on high. Imagine throwing a line when you can see maybe half way up the lock wall.
Growing up in the Bay Area, there were days you had to dismount and push your motorcycle because you couldn't see the next white line on the road.
"Any idiot can make a boat go; it takes a sailor to stop one." Spike Africa aboard the schooner Wanderer in Sausalito, Ca. 1964.
“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” ― Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
