getting around in the harbour

More of the gaggle, beyond a buoy.

This one being towed back. Was this couple in trouble for going around in circles the wrong way? Did they just give up, not getting the hang of things? Did the wind fail them – a wind malfunction?

Maybe a canoe is the most reliable way to go.

Certain days are "sailing class" days, and you know it because there are lots of sailboats out there sailing around in circles.  It's a pretty sight.  I was kind of late catching these shots, the numbers had dwindled for tonight; however it was the most compelling thing out there tonight.

    Lovely scene, takes me back to my sailing days. Perhaps they could be once more.

    As a child I used to ride a sailboat with a friend whose family owned one. I don’t have sea legs, but sailboats really look lovely on the sea.

    Why thank you Paul, and why not revisit those sailing days! Thanks for visiting.

    Yes, I agree they look lovely out there – like butterflies. I’ve been on lots of boats, but only on sailboats a few times. Maybe I need to fix that.

    Love the gaggle. The colours in the photos are kind of vintage. Very nice. They would be perfectly at home hanging on my wall!

    Gaggle seemed an appropriate word. ๐Ÿ™‚ And I’d be most happy to send you one…
