In a Step Into Pictures post last December, I featured the bow of an Edwardian vintage two-screw steamer on Lake Wakatipu in South New Zealand. That picture was taken on the same trip Down Under when I snapped a photo in Sydney Harbor of this sailboat about to go under a famous bridge whose name I can’t remember.
Again, I’ve used the free FotoSketcher program to turn my photo into a watercolor and think the “painting” has a better feeling than the photo. In any case, I hope you will use your imagination to step inside the frame and imagine you are actually sailing on a day when it is perfect for sailing.
Now I suggest you ask yourself whether there someone with whom are you having problems who might be amenable to finding a solution to your differences if you were out on the water.
Since there is a difference between being a passive passenger on a fair sized ship and being a crew member on a sailboat, that could determine whether you wanted to invite that person to join you on a ship or a sailboat.
And of course, some friends you enjoy might like this trip in your imagination better on one boat than on another.
In either case, enjoy the ride.
