Under sail

A while back I posted a photo of Adelaide's sail training ship, the One And All, in response to a request from Sailor Girl. I set off early this morning and sailed north along our coast to get a shot of this beautiful ship under sail. Conditions could not have been better; gentle breezes and a clear blue sky. The wind picked up for a brisk sail back to the marina.

Wow! You are so lucky! Blue skies, blue water, sailing, the sun. What more could you ask for? You're making me jealous.

And hey, thanks again for listening to the radio show!

Our weather yesterday was perfect too, a light wind and not even one cloud. But I guess the temperature must ahve been quite different...This boat is so beautiful, I do like to see these old ships under sail. Thank you for sharing, Gordon!

Lucky you both to sail and photograph. A wonderful photo! I occasionally "borrow" photos for my computer screen. May I use this one for awhile? Have a great week!

Thank you all for your comments. i will try to visit your sites again soon; I have been unusually busy lately.

Joy and Donna - I am not trying to make you jealous; just sharing what I enjoy so much.

Kate, I am flattered that you want to use my photo; you are most welcome.
