any weather

Well, we live in New England. Weather is like the wind. Canned a trip last weekend due to rain, rain and more rain. This morning its 'severe thunder storms likely'...but we're going. Just an overnighter to Rockport, somewhat of a yearly fitting out trip. A 3 hour tour. Get to try out my new Olympus 1030 which has got to be better than my cell phone camera....right?

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.

Same here...

The Admiral and I are try to do our first overnight of the season this weekend. Weather for the weekend has gone from iffy to good back to iffy as the week progresses. Want to go south from Marblehead to either Boston or Scituate, but yet again T-storms are predicted as well as light winds in the wrong direction.

I know if we don't go, the weekend will be gorgeous.

If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.

Depends on your photography skillz... if you keep your left fingers over the lens, then no... the cell phone will work better. Have fun... say hi to Motif #1, v.2 for me. Don't forget to go around the big breakwater...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I hear good things about the camera...enjoy!

I think interesting weather makes for great photos.

Incoming Storm

I'm hoping we'll be out on Buzzards Bay this weekend. We were so pleased with ourselves with getting the boat in the water in the end of May, but with weather and family obligations, we've only been out once.

Where do you sail out of... I'll keep an eye out for you... I'll either be on my boat or a friend's catamaran.

Phinney's harbor, near the canal. But we get as far into Buzzards Bay as wind, waves, and current will take us.

If you see someone with a camera, wave. It might be me, and I upload the photos to AmericanDreamPhotos.com.

I take the camera out on every trip, and I figured there might be people out there interested in having a photo of themselves out on their boats.

I know WE would love to have a photo of ourselves under sail, but hard to do when you're ON the boat.

Whereabouts are you?

I'm thinking you're not in New England.

The catamaran I sometimes sail on is out of Marion harbor, which is up your way, and my boat is a trimaran out of New Bedford.
