A Sailor’s Life for Me

On Sunday one of Addi’s friends (who also happens to be one of his bosses) had a little get-together at Family Beach near the Port Authority. He let us take his little boat for a spin and we cruised along the southwestern coast. It was so cool to be out on the water. After we left the choppy waters of the port it was smooth sailing, no pun intended. I really can’t think of anything I’d like more right now than my very own boat…just a small one. I predict we will purchase our first boat before we purchase our first home.
I didn’t take my Nikon on the boat because I was certain it would get sprayed. Instead I used the little Sony protected with the underwater housing. Good thing I did because afterward the housing was covered with a thin layer of sea salt!
This is right outside the channel that leads to Spanish Steps.

The water was so blue that day!

Kawika gets ready to take a plunge from the giant rope swing just down the coast from Spanish Steps. Click to see the bigger picture. That cave is huge!

If you’ve got a boat, I’d like to be your new best friend. Call me! haha

    Josie: I grew up with boats, both working and pleasure boats. There are loads of reasons to get one, and loads of reasons to sell one!
    Check out:
    It takes years in one location to learn the waters (and learn the ropes) so start carefully.
    On a scale of 1 to 10 (1: the possibility of fatality in a ‘car accident’ verses 10, in an ‘airplane accident’) a boat is in my opinion an 8.5. I highly suggest spending a few hours at http://www.uscgboating.org/ if you have little experience in boating.
    All that aside, there’s nothing like sleeping on a boat, so get one that’s big enough to lie down in. Be sure to have an auxiliary engine on board what ever you buy: it’s a long drift to anywhere from Guam!
    Finally an adage:
    Question – What are the two best days in the life of a boat owner?
    Answer – The day you buy your boat and the day you sell your boat. In between, a boat is a hole in the water you pour money into. (B-O-A-T “Break Out Another Thousand”)

    Unbelievable! Does Guam have a tourism board? They really need to hire you.

    Guam as a matter of fact does have a pretty lame tourism board, aka GVB (Guam Visitor’s Board). The board is entirely funded by government subsidies & from the hotel tax occupancy. Their website is http://www.visitguam.org
    If you ask me Tricia, you are better off visiting latitude13 on a regular basis to see what Guam truly has to offer. Josie’s photoblog is totally kick ass!

    Thank you Thomas. 🙂
    I would LOVE to get paid to explore Guam and take pictures. Can you say “dream job”?

    I went to Guam on vacation from Tokyo in Spring 2007, and took a lot of what I thought were beautiful photos… Now I am slightly embarassed. Those shots you took are astounding, and I would love to team up with you and take photos of places like this all over the planet! Dream job, maybe. Fact is, not everyone sees the world of light and composition like you (and sometimes I)
    do. Like Sherlock said to Watson, “You look but you don’t see”.
