RE: Perfect anchorages on the East Coast.

Well,* Without the mountains, waterfalls, and rainforests perhaps the East Coast Vistas are lacking.

The Canyons of the Hudson

Block Island looming in the distance

The Cliffs of NewPort and Marthas Vineyard.

A tropical lagoon in Florida.

The rugged Maine Coast.

The 1000 Islands.

Come on lets post some pics.

Sleepless in New Jersey.* JohnP

RE: Perfect anchorages on the East Coast.

You mentioned the 1000 islands... can we include Lake Ontario? *At Sunset Bay Marina where we keep our trawler, there is a small anchoring area just up from our dock.

RE: Perfect anchorages on the East Coast.

I was hoping for this thread as I'm familiar w the west coast so even dull pics of the east coast will be an adventure for me. The Hudson river, the islands sea wise from the ICW, New England, Texas coast, Ohio River ect ect. Love this lighthouse. We have nothing like this on the west.

RE: Perfect anchorages on the East Coast.

C Chuck,

Those are great. The ball's rolling now. I'm guessing without mountains close up pics would prolly work better. OK when we get 100 pics up here we'll vote on'em. Looks like Chuck's the winner so far. OK we'll never get 100 pics so how-about 100 anchors ha ha.

RE: Perfect anchorages on the East Coast.

Okay,* It may take a while, but hopefully those (confined) to the East Coast will take

********** landscape (seascape) photography more seriously in 2011.

***********As folks start to cruise around they can post their pics here.

********** Granted without the towering peaks in the background getting dramatic
*
***********shots will be a little harder.


***********Maybe what we lack in natural beauty we can make up in historical places.

Perfect anchorages on the East Coast.

These were all taken from the back deck of my house on Stoney Creek in MD.* I was playing around with a spiffy new pocket camera I received as a gift.* Some of the shots were taken at the max zoom so they might look a bit grainy. But the power packed into the little digital cameras is simply amazing.* And, hey, the view out my back door doesn't suck either.

For you folks that don't know the area, it's sometimes called the Redneck Riviera.* Or, The 'Dena.* Or, in less flattering terms, the armpit of Anne Arundel County.

In case you were wondering, I'm walking the hound early every morning and catch a lot of sunrises.
