How photographer David L. Ryan captured the shot: At Fish Pier, I noticed how the view with clouds and ships appeared with the sunlight behind me. The sun was covered on and off with the clouds. With 100mm-400mm lens I waited and was lucky to see another sailing ship pass along with a bird in the sky. The sun peeked out and I clicked off some frames. It does pay to wait and take more shots than you think.

This is what my dreams look like.

This one, in particular.

I need to get back out on the water, y’all. It’s been six years since we sailed away and I just made Halifax yesterday. (Stan Rogers jokes aside, I sailed on the Exy Johnson six years ago and I’m pretty sure I haven’t been since.)

Bring me that horizon.

(Or a misty day on the high seas.)

UGH SERIOUSLY?!?!

These photos that the Constitution is posting are killing me. Up in the rigging with Boston in the background? All I want in life, y’all. All I want in life.

Parts of a Sailing Vessel

Fact: I can handle myself pretty darn well on a ship, from hauling lines to climbing the rigging and furling sails.
