Thanks Ian. "Dogs have masters. Cats have staff."
Ian , just what is holding you off the dock ? Is it the faint line I see on the left to an anchor or a finger ??
I make it a point to get as many sunrise and sunsets images as I can, especially when I travel. As shown above by many here it is a special time of day and seems to invoke a kind of reverence, like...
I put the silver side out. It works well for me as I notice it's warm under the cover during winter days. Since my boat is in the yard close to...
I'm still working on mine.
.. aboard the USS George H.W. Bush CVN 77.
My Dad served in WW1 with the 27 Infantry division. He saw action in France & Belgium.
I was awake long before dawn. The droning sound of the ships propulsion clued me that we were underway and not tied up. I quickly dressed and came on deck to view the now setting moon to the west. To...
Four are still alive today.
Read here about this daring raid over Tokyo Japan in April 18,1942 launched from the aircraft carrier USS Hornet.
Most of the above.
I always liked this one:
The Sand Pebbles.
I understand the US Navy is returning to the dress whites shown in the image below in 2014.
Content with the sunset shots I had taken I ducked below to the assigned table for the 20:00 dinner. Hurtigruten took care to make assignments congenial with nationality so conversation could flow...
Amazing !!! Especially just walking away from it all.
I used a simple tripod set up right in front of me. You tube uploads, also gives the user the choice to "stabilize" the video.
The camera I use lacks a good lens. I would like to get a better one...
Tom , It's a portion of "Autumn" from the Four Seasons by Vivaldi. I hope I can make another three on the Q river using the rest of the Four Seasons as back ground music.
Donn, you'd snag something in the river for sure.:d
There are some big carp in that river. I once saw a dead on on the bank. It must have been 5' at least.
Company 256 steps out for the Armory
Boyd kind of sung the cadence call. We had gotten used to its uniqueness and even considered it a signature of...
Paul, Did you go for a paddle ? It must be tough to do in hell!!
Well I got a Happy Birthday greeting allready. Thanks seanz.
Absolutely beautiful. Time well spent.
After careful editing and adding a sound track, here is a video where the sound and video end almost together.
The ship’s PA came to life. It sounded a bit garbled from where I hovered viewing the constantly changing scenery. The announcement said something about the Vesterallen soon transiting the narrowest...
Whew!! Come on Bob C. (ex Pop eye) get down from your soap box and take a look here :
Excellent video. :d Thanks for posting it.
And the cigar goes to Mad Scientist.
The rail wrap was intended to protect it from any drips coming from above....
That seems like a sensible comment.
PS I haven't seen it yet.
Are there any video's showing the Scamp sailing in say 15 to 20 kt winds and the accompanying seas ?
Thanks for any video's posted.
Underway again we steamed on a sea widening before us pushing the land further away... for now. Clouds seem to hover over the distant shores and a calm sea.
That could explain it all.;)
Interesting discovery, thanks for posting it here.
Mizzenman,( Ragnar B.) That too, but I think that type of anchor probably didn't exist during the Viking era. I was thinking more like Villtur's post referring to the steering station on the port...
Now thats funny.
BATH, Maine — The largest destroyer ever built for the Navy is getting into the water for the first time - and the stealthy vessel looks unlike any U.S. warship before.
Without fanfare, Maine's Bath...

Looks good , thanks. :d
We consulted with local Norwegians and with Johanna’s map reading skills we managed to find our way back to our ship. On the way we saw:
Thanks for posting. I always like to see postings about back water creeks etc. Too bad about the bogs, water restrictions and 22's sounding off. More folks should take advantage of similar waters in...
Beautiful images. Hope you can do the same during the other three seasons.
As a matter of fact I did scare up a Great Blue Heron. But I had left the camea on the wrong ISO from a previous setting much overexposing the video.
On the other Beethoven video Duck hunters ( in...
Inspecting wallpaper charts could present interesting diversion from some bedroom activities.;)
I could just imagine a couples dialog.:D
Tom, your casting efforts look first class from here.
A couple of questions, how is your mizzen sail attached to the mast? On the cover shot it looks like a lacing line. When on the mooring or...
I like that all brass mast gate. One can open it by removing one belaying pin, or both.
Does anybody remember this movie about saving French art during WW2 ?
Happy Birthday and many more healthy ones to come. May the Northen lights display on your special day.:d
Yes please Tom more details on the boat from bow to stern.
Inquiring minds want to know.
Pirogeing on the Quinnipiac river.
Very nice. The sail sets beautifuly and on a sweet hull shape. BTW was the wind NW ?
The guide book talks at length about Nidaros, now called Trondheim. It mentions that many a Viking raids were launched from here. Leif Erickson received...
The MS Vesteralen wound her way back through the Fjord to once again to dock in Alesund. This gave a little time to explore this charming harbor.
