We sailed north this morning on a fine clear day and a glassy sea.

A glassy sea implies no wind so we would have been powered by the engine.

I’m sitting on the bow here, looking back.

I was impressed by the patterns in the wake at the side of the ketch.

And I’m picking off selections with a very long lens.

An interesting mixture of the sharp and real and the abstract and dreamy.

Submersed in the magic of nature…

Ethereal boundaries and transitions…

Probably these conditions didn’t last long as we steamed out of a sheltered anchorage.
