In the small bight just north of Clare Is in Niblack Anchorage in the NE quarter of Moira Sound. Just before pulling anchor in the morning. It was early. Weather was coming and we wanted to get home that day.

Zain, last winter, watching a diesel fish boat go by while on a hike down Douglas Channel, wondering if his owners would ever get around to buying him a boat;

Lots of nice scenery pictures uploaded here. We all get a chance to see unique areas where we boat. So many people living downtown in the cities miss this stuff.
Here are a couple more shots from around Newfoundland. Second one is from the cottage last year.

Mark I've been wondering where you've been. I like your new avatar.

As you can see I've got lots of tranquility pictures.

!. One of our favorite places to go. We named it Picnic Island. Could walk around it in about 10 min. The abundance of shells suggests long ago Indian activity or Sea Otter activity. It's at the east end of Sea Otter Sound and the west end of Karheen Passage.

2. A seal watches us leaving Picnic Is. Picnic Is is a name we gave the island. It's right next to Garden Is.

The Norwegian Dawn, off the Yucatan Peninsula, taken from its sister ship Norwegian Star.



Despite contrary whining, the running lights are quite distinguishable among other lights..

Well, I thought that was on purpose. After all, that IS the correct orientation from our point of view......

The first time I drove my boat was through “The Rockpile”. I was going very, very slow and the guy with me just kept saying “keep her in the middle, keep her in the middle”. There was a sailboat a couple of hundred yards ahead of us and I was maintaining that distance. All of a sudden the sailboat starts heading way over to the side. The other guy on my boat tried to call him on the radio, and then shouted at him not to go over there, but it was too late. The boat slammed to a dead stop with a loud bang. The whole boat shook violently. I had come to a complete stop still quite a distance away and slowly moved up to him. The fellow said they were trying to get to a private dock and missed the marking.
He threw us a line and we towed him off with a lot of scraping.

After we passed through that section the guy with me says “Oh, by-the-way, that was the notorious Rockpile that we just went through”. Thanks! KJ
