Sailing

Sometimes words get in the way...

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.

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.

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.....

Please tell us what is the small figure sailing up, behind the boat.

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

How very beautiful (despite the choppiness).

DJan said...

Yes! What a lot of fun this was. :-)

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

Lighthouses around the world are always something I enjoy seeing, Tomoko.

After all week, the silent Sunday is my favourite, AC.

It was rough that day but the sailor was undeterred, Shammi.

Marie Smith said...

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.

Marie Smith said...

Thank you, Celia.

Marie Smith said...

Exactly, Debbie!

Marie Smith said...

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

The small sailboats on the harbour are a peaceful scene, EC.

Marie Smith said...

I would think so, Jan.

Marie Smith said...

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

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!

It's true Marie! No words needed, that fabulous old lighthouse says it all for me ☺

Marie Smith said...

Happy to stir up such a great memory, Marilyn!

Marie Smith said...

It does, PDP.

What a wonderful day for some lucky sailor.

It looks like fun, doesn't it, Barbara?
