  1. It would be something to see that boat in full sail. There's a big race here every spring and it's grand to stand out on the point to watch the beautiful sailboats speed out to the strait.

  2. Love your photographs Shane! Hope you are well.

    Have a lovely rest of the week,

  5. Those sunsets are spectacular! Oh, how I'd love to see that in person!

  6. Such incredibly beautiful photos, especially those wonderful skies!! A real pleasure to see them. xx

  7. Beautiful! I would love going out on that yacht.

  8. An accomplished yachtsman to be sure! What a marvelous pretty with the boats in contrast.

  9. There's something stirring about sailboats. They symbolize adventure and freedom. There's a boat that sails in our waters that has a red sail - it's very striking on the water. Good for your NZ crew!

  10. Hi Shane,

    Beautiful sunset photos! They make me want to be on that boat right now. :-)

    Sorry for the delay in answering your question about the blue fish in Monterey. You weren't being ignorant at all. Monterey is known for their great aquarium, so I'm thinking the blue fish are related to that. They were stenciled along a main pedestrian and bike path near the bay.

    I hope you are enjoying your week!


  11. A pretty yacht and wonderful sky-colors, dearest Shane!

    Thank you so much for you sweet word on my blog!

    Lots of hugs from Austria,


  12. Sailboats on the sea, I see a lot here in sommertime, too ,Shane, and it is such a beautiful view, always.
    The red yacht looks wonderful, and I dare say there were many races won !!
    Hope your day is lovely, dear !!
    Dorthe, xxoo
