And the Dream began.....

And the Dream began... I can remember my very first sailboat as if it were yesterday...the shiny, bright red hull, the brilliant white sail that could blind you in the afternoon sun as it danced across the water. I loved that boat and would have done anything to keep it safe. Even fall off the dock and almost drown...but that was many moons ago and I was only 3. Thank goodness for a quick dad! My pride and joy and I were both safe and lived to sail another day. There have been many more loves in my life since that wonderful week on Keuka Lake and a good a share of them have been the sailing variety. So I guess that it was only natural that over time the dream to sail around the world would become a passion. I am very lucky that the man in my life, my husband Gar, has humored me in following this dream. We are getting there and hope to set sail once we retire but the journey has been fun. Hope you enjoy the ride!

Nantucket Beach Walk

Nantucket Beach Walk
Date: June 27, 2011
Location: Nantucket Island, Massachusetts
LatLong: 41.28613N, 70.09793W

Don’t leave without me!!  The ferry ride from Martha’s Vineyard over to Nantucket is wonderful.
My little flying friend was headed over too.
I love coming into a new harbor.  So many new things to see and places to explore.
Just love a light house too!!
Doesn’t this just scream New England with the wonderful white steeple reaching to the heavens!
Beautiful old wooden boats
These aren’t bad either.  Beautiful harbor with the grey cedar shakes and white trim.  Love it!
Okay, buoys and gulls, Back to Work!!!
Looks pretty good for a “Sunken Ship”.
Vintage Nantucket
This one too!
Looks like this Island could really be Easy Street!!  Want to meet me there??
Till next time, don’t forget to relax and get some sand between your toes!
