The Wind Beneath My Sails .............



~ Port River Estuary ~

No ... I'm not in a sail boat ... but on a slow smooth cruise craft
heading in the other direction

Nothing better than to see the wind beneath sails under beautiful blue skies






On the return journey ... dark clouds were starting to gather
I was more than happy to reach shore and place my feet upon terra firma!

You weren't thinking of being sea-sick with those clouds coming up. Twice I have had the joy of sailing out to sea from the Port River. Both time in a large yacht, one circumnavigating Australia and the other visiting from Tasmania. Great fun being followed by dolphins and avoiding the boom as you come around.

Nice shots, good to see you enjoying yourself.

Gorgeous skies, beautiful boat and terrific captures for the day, Dianne! However, I would have been glad to be on land once those dark clouds began to gather!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy!

Your last photo is superb, with the ominous sky and the glistening water and wake. Excellent!

lovely sailboat photos; you and I were both out on the water yesterday! Going across the heads, Sydney Harbour was just a little bouncy :(

Beautiful sky shots and nice looking boats.

Dianne your first shot is stunning, the other two are very nice as well, but the first one captured my full undivided attention. You are so blessed to live in such a beautiful city with waters surrounding you in many different directions. I've fallen in love with this place and will leave a piece of my heart here, this way I'll have to come back to reclaim the portion I've left behind.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I don't get the chance to be out on the water watching these beautiful sails - it is a different experience than watching from land. Glad the sky co-operated for you.
