Come Sail Away

"I look to the sea,
Reflections in the waves spark my memory,
Some happy, some sad,
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had,
We lived happily forever, so the story goes,
But somehow we missed out on the pot of gold
But we'll try best that we can to carry on ..."
Come Sail Away [Styx]

 I hope you're carrying on into 2014. If you need a momentary break from winter, then close your eyes and come sail away with me (click on the link below the photos) ...

I love to escape, Rick. I already miss summer although winter still has to start here. Beautiful pictures and clip. Het is hier saai weer. Rain, wind and too warm for winter and too cold for spring. Thanks for your escape. Greetings, Joke

Hello Rick,
This second photo is an absolute beauty!
The sky is magnificent, the lighting perfect and is the composition.
I'd love to get onto one of these boat and go off sailing!

I love the gull! I have such trouble capturing birds in flight. The second photo is wonderful with the light, colour and reflections.
