The #Florida communities of St Augustine and Anastasia Island are linked across the #Matanzas River, part of the #Intracoastal #Waterway, by the “Bridge of Lions,” a concrete #bridge styled to also be a work of #art, and crowned with the gift of two marble lion sculptures.
Since #ship traffic passes through the vital #IntracoastalWaterway, the bridge rises to permit tall boats through. Many #sailboats and #yachts are either waiting to cross or are anchored in the river.

An outdoor, daylight photograph of a stonework bridge across a waterway. There are 4 stone towers with terra cotta tile roofs and a metal bridge part between the two pairs. On the calm, muddy blue water, there are sailboats, small yachts, and speedboats. The sky above is a clear, light blue without clouds.

Took this photo of the marina in the South Yacht basin in downtown St. Petersburg, FL. The number of white sailboat masts standing at side by side attention caught my eye. The Albert Whitted airport control tower can be seen in the distance.

A quiet morning in this secluded cove shows a personal watercraft beached on the shore waiting for the day to begin. Sailboats are anchored on the glassy smooth bay waters as the sun climbs in the morning sky through breaks in the cloud-filled sky. It was a beautiful start to the day.

In the Strait of Gibraltar, the revenge of Gladis the orca.

Killer whale 'attacks' on sailboats in these waters have been increasing over the past three years. According to scientists, all the cetaceans involved in these incidents belong to the family of a female hit by a boat in 2020.

Sailboats on the bay of Cascais in Portugal.  Off in the slightly hazy distance is a peninsula where the town of Sesimbra lies....each on different sides of Lisbon.  The greens and blues of the water are so soothing which made me think of Van Morrison's Into The Mystic lyrics.

I love to be on the water in the early morning hours when everything is so peaceful and tranquil and before the rush of the day begins. This beautiful sailboat is safely moored along the calm waters of the Intracoastal Waterway on the Florida Gulf coast.

This #seascape was created by Vincent van Gogh in 1888 at the fishing village of Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, during a trip he took from Arles in the south of France. We can tell that Van Gogh painted this view of the sea from the beach, as grains of sand have been found in the paint layers. With bold brush strokes, he neatly captured the effect of the light through the waves.

The sun was rising in a cloud-filled sky on this particular morning, casting a blue mood over the peaceful secluded cove. Sailboats were quietly anchored in the bay as a personal watercraft sat idly on the shore waiting at the ready for the day to begin.

I'm kind of obsessed with looking at sailboat listings, as many people who know me are aware, but it has just occurred to me that there's no such thing as window shopping for boats.

It isn't window shopping. It's portlight shopping.

Die letzte Periode war eine der härtesten dieses Refits für uns: wir hatten den kompletten Salon zerlegt, um vier Schotts zu reparieren - tlw war kein halber qm mehr zum treten da. Da das Schiff nicht in einer Halle steht, mussten wir alles im Schiff selbst erledigen - sägen, schleifen, primern, streichen usw. Umso zufriedener sind wir, dass alles wieder zusammen bekommen zu haben.

The atmosphere of a foggy morning is always a great way to start the day. Sailboats were peacefully anchored on the bay waters as the yellow fireball rose above the horizon and painted the cloudy sky with a warm orange glow. One lone pelican was up early as we arrived to watch the sun come up.

Hey hey boat nerds, Off Center Harbor's Classic Boat Show is happening this week, and is getting extended through March 5th! It's a cheap ticket ($10) and the presentations are great (as is the gallery of boat photos, be still my heart)! All presentations are available for viewing later, so if you get a ticket now, you can still watch the earlier days.

We visit this secluded cove often because I love the peace that blankets the atmosphere here. There are always a few sailboats moored in the bay either as a stopover on their way to somewhere else or a few who call this bay home.

Anyone with experience trailering sailboats? I visited my Flicka 20 today, she's in a boatyard on a trailer that I bought to be modified for her. These pads are at the stern, both sides aren't touching the hull. Is that odd? LOA is only 20ft but she's heavy at 3 tons. I noticed one other full keel sailboat's stern pads not touching. Eventually she'll need to travel 230 miles (Eugene OR to Olympia WA and back, along I5). I want to make sure this is safe? #sailing #boats #sailboats #trailers

Close up of a trailer pad under a fiberglass boat hull  - the trailer pad seems like it should be touching the hull, but isn't, there's visible air space between them.

Big Sky Morning was one of those mornings you don’t mind getting up early for. The sky was filled with altocumulus clouds which always make for a beautiful sunrise or sunset. The moored sailboats sit quietly on the glassy bay waters as the sun rises in the east. It's HERE:
