One more Tall Ship

By Silver Blue

Just because I love this photo.

Remember: Sing like no one is listening, Dance like no one is watching, and Love as if you’ve never been hurt. Your “heaven” is what you make it to be.

When I realized that this was only the 6th OpSail since 1964, I realized that I was part of something very special. There’s no guarantee I’ll be around for the next one — in body, or in locale.

Life is short. Take the chance. Follow your passion.

Do what makes YOU happy.

Others may try to stand in your way, to tell you that you can’t, or you shouldn’t, or that you mustn’t. But why? If it’s not hurting anyone else, then why not have a go at whatever it is? Colour your hair. Eat that cake. Run that marathon. Be what YOU want to be. Never look back on your life and wonder what might have been…your time could be up at any moment. A moment spent happy is NEVER a moment wasted.

Silver Blue…who is dancing away now…

The TALL Ships

By Silver Blue | 1 comment


OpSail 2012 was today. The arrival of the tall ships.

I was in love.

The Coast Guard ship which started it all.

Coming around the bend from Fort Monroe.

Yes. The sailors were standing on the masts.

Another tall ship with the sailors on the masts.

I’m sunburned, but it’s WORTH it.

Silver Blue, who was able to lose himself behind the camera. A very successful Photo Phriday!
