Travel Theme: Mystical

By Vladimir Brezina

Ailsa’s travel-themed photo challenge this week is Mystical. And it makes me very happy to learn that, in choosing that theme, she was inspired by a photo that I posted recently. Unfortunately that means, too, that I can no longer respond to her Mystical challenge with that, my most Mystical photo…

Never mind. Here are a few photos taken at a moment that truly came close to being mystical during one of our paddles in New York Harbor—

More photos and the story are here and here.
