Happy Valentine!

love the ideas of solitude and the infinite the lone sail and the sea evoke.

That guy's cheating...he's using his motor! But it's still a great image. I really like the way the light is playing on the boat and the water. It creates a really great mood.

Asha said...

Gorgeous!! Happy V day to you and your's. Enjoy! :))

Hubby wants a boat but too much responsibility and he doesn't have the time to enjoy! :P

Happy V Day!

I didn't notice the motor but I did notice it's flying the Canadian flag. Coincidently, so is my boat pictured here: http://thepaganeye.blogspot.com/2009/02/photo-hunter-theme-nautical.html

I remember my dad taking us to see "The Tall Ships" whenever they came to New York. I know we saw them from the beach on Long Island a couple of times, and when I was older I saw them in New York Harbor. When the whole fleet of them starts moving together, it's quite the spectacular site!

Now then, I have something exciting to tell you. When I signed on to my Google Reader this evening, guess what I saw under "Top Recommendations"? I saw, "Why, What Have You Heard?", and I was like, "Hey, I know that blog!" :D So I just wanted to let you know - about that 15 minutes, this appears to be yours. ;) Enjoy it!
