Paul, great photos by crew-member Paul…. Wish I had someone along with that talent.
I think the most beautiful photos of our boats are the ones where the surroundings capture your eye and the boat is there to remind you of the wonderful gift, that she safely brought and sustained you there.
Then beauty really is in the eye of a beholder who knows he has a trusted companion in a personal craft who has shared his experiences, good or bad.
These photos are near the NE corner of Tablas Island in the Philippines
, where we beach tied for a few days amongst coral
canyons and subterranean lakes.
Quiet days of snorkeling, diving
and exploring the grottoes along the coast. Total privacy, except for the odd deserted fisherman’s campsite
Ashore the rugged mountains had many naturally exposed seams of blue veined, white marble, tropical birds and wild mango, papaya to replenish our fruit supplies.
Truly beautiful and why I never begrudge looking after my nautical mistress!
