Waiting to go out to sea

Boynton Beach, FL, December 2007

About this photo: All week long, we're sharing quiet-themed photos as part of this week's Thematic Photographic. The new theme goes up on Wednesday, so it's not too late to jump in with something from your own archives.
I've written recently about my need to spend time beside large bodies of water (here, here and here) so I wont belabor the point. But I did want to share this scene, taken last year, because it adds another dimension to the relaxation parade: night.

As I stood behind these peacefully moored boats, I wondered where they'd be going tomorrow, and I hoped that whoever was at the wheel derived joy from being out there. Before I turned for home, I wished them a safe journey.

Your turn: Where are these boats headed? Where would you take them if you could?

It's almost time to set out for an early, early fishing trip.

I would hope they'd be going to warmer waters, LOL.

I would sail to Virginia, if I could, to see my EllaBelle.

They are going to freedom.
We would go to a place where all there is, is water and all we need, is air.

if you asked the hubby, he would tell you that it's lobster season and time for a lobster run.

i'd prefer to just go where the current takes me. no real plans - just time to explore.

I grew up on the Gulf of Mexico; lots of boats and beaches. I have to say, I never really appreciated living on the beach until now.

I am now in Northern Arkansas, where there are no beaches. However, there is a ton of beautiful waterfalls, lakes, and rivers.
