    1. Hi Andrea ~ thanks for 'coming by' and your posted comments ~ The Schooner is powered by Sails but has a small motor also. Sailing on the Lannon is open to the public and is a wonderful experience ~ even 'us' natives enjoy it ~ Was courted on the Lannon ~ lovely ~ ^_^

  40. Great series! I would really hate to try riding that bike course. Tough one!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I was tickled to read that you were using you iPhone more since your camera was so heavy. That is exactly why I use mine and it is only a "4". No bells and whistles or someone who will talk to me ;-) At times it is grainy, but most of the time it does just fine. When I was shooting in the raw, I was having to take down the pixels in Photoshop or LR so I could post them to the blog. Your schooner shot is dreamy. I have a silk one that was my daddy's and it is a treasure. Your first picture with all the towers is amazing. So many in so close a radius. genie
