Sailing into the Harbor

Corona Del Mar, California

There's something very relaxing about sitting high on a cliff while watching boats come and go.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday.

  1. it is definitely less relaxing working on the sails of the boat than sitting high above looking down. I like your way of seeing things!

  2. Very relaxing :) Love the shot and the people on the rock pier and the gulls on the forward rock just add to this. Beautiful :)

  4. Terrific capture and I couldn't agree more, James! How fortunate we are to have beautiful views to see and great places to see them from! Hope your week is going well.

  8. You have plenty of opportunity for watery sights now that you have relocated to the SC coast. I bet it is cool there, too.

  9. Beautiful shot. On a high cliff or down near the jetty, I love to watch the boats. I do miss living near the ocean.

  16. That would be a dreamy way to pass the time, on a cliff gazing out to see and watching the boats come in. I'd like to join the others walking along the wall there.

  20. Beautifully composed photo. I really like the shape of the boat against the shapes of the rocks in foreground and bacground.

    To answer your question, I liked all cities that I visited in Europe since as you know they each have something distinctive about them. I really love history, learning about cultures, and being active in the place I visit. So I think I was most drawn to Lucca for its history and more quiet pace of life, and then the Cinque Terre for it's obvious beauty, being able to hike, boat, swim, etc. and watching the locals way of life in these tiny towns.
