Everyday I get the chance to raise my head from my pillow, and then get out of my berth, It's PARADISE. Once I am up, and the coffeee is going. This is what greets my eyes for the start of the day. For now we are tied to the slip waiting to do this!...........i2f

What does your neighbors wife look like... Just kidding..Just Kidding!

Again people please...This is not some sort of view contest..in any way shape or forum...Im now starting to regret i posted a picture out my front window and in stead one out my back of a giant pile of horse manure.

Please people.... this thread is more meant as a chance to what motivates you to dream ,work hard and struggle of getting out there in paradise or stay there!...Yes some are fortunate to live in it now and we want to see that view you wake up to...or some of us have a sliver of a glimpse of a different sort of paradise in the minds of others but this is supposed to be a fun way of just letting yourself get artistic with a camera and show us that sliver of your world.

There must be something that caused you to decide" This is the Place we want to live"..Maybe that was just cheap rent for right now..that's cool..so what do you look out your windows that ticks you off and drives you to this Forum to talk about boats, living on boats or escaping on a boat.

That's what this is all about ...

Sorry if my Original Picture was counter productive to this ideal. Maybe I should start over with a different thread...But we chose this place as the last house we would ever own as a base to always come back to...... it had to have something going for it..

Photo of Manure pile comming up!..As living here is not my ideal of paradise...just home!

We are anchored in 15ft of water. You can still see the shadow of the dink. These pics are the Exumas in the Bahamas. It's really a fantastic place, and so close to Florida. 36 hours from Miami, and you are there.

I am still working on the boat daily. Getting her ready to sail to S.F. Ca. I am going to miss the Bahamas, but there's other islands ahead after we leave S.F.

Our new home will be the Philippines with 7,107 islands to explore. Most are uninhabited. They are like the Exumas times 1000. Sometimes it feels like an eternity before we will finally drop Imagine's hook there.....i2f

So is this max hull speed?...

This is so cool!...thanks for sharing...

I spent 8 years in the oil patch, I always listened to the offshore drilling stories with great enthusiasm and envied those that were out there ...It was always.... "If the fire doesn't get you the Sharks will kind of things" but As far a my working career goes to this day it was always a disappointment for me that that opportunity never came.



Nice photography..Daddle
