Sailing a Boat
I feel like the only male in New Zealand that doesn’t know how to sail a boat. I swear to God… everywhere I go the conversation eventually turns to sailing at some point. And then people start talking about spinnakers and all kinds of crazy stuff, and I just slowly back out of the room…
I should look up what a spinnaker is so that I can say something clever before backing out of said room. Here I’ll look it up right now in fact. No time like the present. Back in a sec.
“first recorded use of the word was in 1866 in the August edition of Yachting Calendar and Review (p. 84). In addition, the term may have been influenced by the spanker, originally a gaff rigged fore-and-aft sail.” Okay… backing out of the room…
Daily Photo – Exploring the Little Bay
Here’s a new little bay that I had never visited before in Queenstown along Lake Wakatipu. I see all these amazing places from the air, and I wonder, “What would it look like if I stood THERE?!” I had never been to this exact spot before. Thanks to Todd & Sarah Sisson for bring us here! This is a spot we came during the New Zealand workshop and it was really perfect.
This shot is a single exposure. I did take multiple exposures while there, but this one came out so clean and dandy that no more were necessary!
