Come sail away

Ok, hands up all of you who've dreamt about leaving the 9-5 routine, life in the suburbs, the daily commute, the rat race ... behind. C'mon, sure you have - probably the last time you were in a warm place in the winter time staring at yachts in a marina ! Sell the house, sell the car, keep the kids and dog and just sail away.

Well, turn the volume up, click here, and pick your boat out on the photo below.

Happy sailing !

Yep- that IS my dream.
Sail away I would for sure.
My plan is to retire on a boat;))

Nice reflections- perfect time of day!!

A wonderful dream indeed. I enjoyed the Styx video too. I was on my way to a Marina tonight to get some sunset/night shots and got locked out :-( I would have loved to come away with some shots like this one.

Hi there. Many thanks for your invitation, I've got my backpack packed and fly to you and the boats....oohhhh can't wait to sail away.
With a good glass of wine (white or a rose please) in my hand, the sun on my cheeks and the wind in my hair....
Yep does it for me.

Hugs and thanks Dagmar

We have some boats 4 miles away - but it's too cold to go anywhere!

So peaceful and very tempting - especially now that I'm parenting two teenagers!

Congratulations for completing your photo project!!

Me gusta mucho esta no solo porque me encantan los barcos y los muelles sino por la luz ;)

Gracias Maria - it was the perfect time for the shot - twilight.
