My Happy Place

This is my happy place. It is a photo taken off of Islesboro, ME after sailing up from Boston. Heaven on earth.

February seems to be the widely regarded best cruising month...and our experience certainly confirmed that.

Re: My Happy Place

How about these two... sunset on the Clarence River and Port Cygnet, Tassie?

Both are special to Ann and I.

Cheers,

Jim

Great spot too. Our Clarence River sunset pics can't compete so we'll just add a daylight perspective...

We will have to go late Dec to Jan due to stupid school holidays.
Why can't schools work it out around best cruising months?

Did not even think about that,

Tassie is only a 24 hr sail from home so it's a bit silly that we have not even gone in the last 4 years

What an absolutely fantastic picture that is. Looks "made". And it is - by Mother Nature.

Fabulous.
