Happy Winter!

By Vladimir Brezina

Ailsa’s travel-themed photo challenge this week is Winter.

In NYC, meteorological Winter has been with us for quite some time. And with tomorrow’s Winter Solstice, astronomical Winter starts as well. But there is a silver lining—even though the coldest days are yet to come, from today the day length will steadily increase toward Spring…

In the meantime, Happy Winter!

However, for reasons that can’t be gainsaid, we are off to Florida for a week’s paddling, in regions that even WordPress cannot reach… Happy Holidays, and see y’all when we get back!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand

By Vladimir Brezina

This week’s Photo Challenge is Grand.

To face the elements is, to be sure, no light matter when the sea is in its grandest mood. You must then know the sea, and know that you know it, and not forget that it was made to be sailed over.

— Joshua Slocum, Sailing Alone Around the World

Even in our little kayaks, in a passing little storm, we occasionally glimpse something of what Slocum meant.
