My home

These are the only few shots I can come up with right now. San Carlos Mexico. Half way up the Sea of Cortez on the mainland side. Went to look at our boat to buy and bought a house as well....!!. We anchor the boat out in front of the house now....:-)...so thats me rowing out to the boat. The ramp at the inner harbour can handle a pretty big 44' custom cat.

Aleutian Islands

So many good anchorages hard to define a favorite. The "spit" is natural and considered one of the finest deep water anchorages in the North Pacific...Is Dutch Harbor Ak.
Couple shots of what we do when we make it back to a good anchorage...some in summer some in winter (you figure it out)...If you look close at the one shot you can see the volcano that is active.

Seaking,

Behind Sandy Cay it's flat, and pretty too...... You can anchor, or get a mooring ball. We stayed for 3 days on a ball, and no one showed up to collect.

Some of mine along with photos from last two trips:

Just outside Spanish Town on Virgin Gorda. - It's not particularly scenic and can get rolly from boat traffic during the day. To avoid the boat traffic, I love to pull in late after snorkeling at the dogs. You can dinghy into town if you wish. The next morning you are very close to The Baths and can get there before the rat race begins or even take the dingy over. (Moorings at The Baths can be limited and anchoring is forbidden) http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3261/...cfb023.jpg?v=0

Baths: http://farm1.static.flickr.com/132/3...5983c4.jpg?v=0

Great Camanoe - Two anchorages where you are likely to be the only boat there, if that's your thing. In the northern bay - work you way back into either corner to find big sand patches. The southern bay has room and bottom for a few boats. (Note, there are a couple really cool caves to snorkel into if you are a confident snorkeler. They are not like The Caves on Normans, but are much deeper, darker and have surge)
http://farm1.static.flickr.com/153/3...a17f29.jpg?v=0

Sandy Spit Cay - Nice little beach. Many seem to think it's a day anchorage only, but I think the shallow reef offers more protection than Sanday Cay does and I've had many enjoyable nights there. http://farm1.static.flickr.com/156/3...bc6db0.jpg?v=0

Cane Garden Bay - Very scenic, with lots of mooring balls, but it's very scenic and reasonbly quiet. There is plenty of room for anchoring as well. Several nice restaurants and live easy going music. Very family oriented. image from my last trip: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3137/...a53a78.jpg?v=0

Jost Van Dyke - Great Harbour - All anchoring with lots of room. Features cutoms, Foxy's, basic groceries, ice, etc. I often do the opposite of everyone else, - enjoy the day here and head out to Sandy Cay or Sandy Spit for the night.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3026/...4bddb7.jpg?v=0

If you are a deep water snorkeler, I recommend snorkeling on the Rhone. Other places to snorkel I recommend, both near Norman's are the Indians and The Caves. Both I believe require you to pick up day park moorings, not anchor. The Baths also offer interesting snorkeling. Caves moorings: (http://farm1.static.flickr.com/144/3...2c4a68.jpg?v=0

If you have time, I really enjoyed getting down to the Spanish Virgin Islands. Culibrita especially: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3218/...3cd1e4.jpg?v=0

Anegada is an anchorage in the BVIs many talk about, but personally, I found it exposed and uninteresting.

my favourite Lake Ontario anchorage. Presently being ruined by cormorants who are killing all the trees that surround this secluded spot in the heart of Toronto. Pic on left is from my boat towards a yacht club mooring field. On right the entrance looking towards downtown.
