A few days ago you saw photo taken from almost the same spot as I took this one. It had a boat. The last boat that came back from the ocean before it got dark. I was walking on the bridge and taking a few photos, including this one.
I like to look at the boats when I happen to be around the open body of water and I always imagine that if I ever end up living in one of those places I’d probably end up getting one my self. I understand that getting a boat or a yacht is like throwing money into the ocean, as it is pure overhead, it introduces all kind of expenses and provides no financial benefit (unless you use it for some business). Of course I have never been on the boat of any size for more than three hours and have no idea if I’d actually like to be on the water that much and even if I liked it how I’d feel to spend a lot of cash for something like that. Hmmm, but it sounds cool to be on the boat and see the world differently from the rest of the solid ground folks.
It is like one of those fantasies we have about a place or activity and what we’d like to do, but have no practical understanding of how it will actually feel like in real life. How about you?

I’m officially on vacation for the rest of the year, looking forward to some relaxing time and not doing whole a lot, well, that probably not going end up that way as I’ll do a lot, just not my primary job related…
As of today’s photo, I’ll give you a clue, probably dead giveaway clue. There are two towns with cool little downtowns, both have small marinas, and it happen that both have the same name. I took this photo in one of them. Sometime while back I actually posted some photos from another town. Where is this one?
Couple weeks ago we did a quick overnighter to Atlantic Beach, NC. It is only about 15 min short drive to to Beaufort, local port town with a small marina and a few water facing restaurants. Naturally we went there to grab some seafood and take some sunset pictures. It was Saturday night and surprisingly not many people. We ended up seating on the outside deck all by ourselves, I guess last weekend in April is too early for people to go out and enjoy nice outdoor temperatures.
