Sailing

Sometimes words get in the way...

  1. When I took a trip along the cost line this summer I found a red small lighthouse, which was in order to light just a small bay though. It was reminded me of your lighthouse many times.

  2. At one point in ancient history, I would post a Silent Sunday blog. This fits. Some do Wordless Wednesdays, which seems to be the much more popular meme.

  3. The water looks a bit bumpy! Many years ago we had a sailboat. I liked it when the water was calm, but I'm not a happy rough water sailor! Which is the whole point of sailing.... it has to be windy to get the boat moving. Oh well.....

    1. I have looked at my photos and those my husband took as well, Joanne and we cannot identify it. The breakwater hides it too well.

  6. Beautiful sequence of photos. The water looks choppy out there. I do like the lighthouse, it's nice seeing them.

    1. It was choppy but the sailor didn't mind! They were braver than I, Bill!

  9. Nice - I remember sailing on waters like this being surprisingly noisy.

    1. It looks peaceful but with the wind that day, it must have been noisy, Stewart.

  10. Beautiful pictures Marie! I went out in a sailboat in the Charlottetown harbor on board the sailboat the doctor I worked for owned. It was a beautiful day, no whitecaps, and he even let me steer the boat for a while. It was a calm day, but on the water, it was windy still. An amazing experience. Your pictures today brought back those memories!
