“We clear the harbor and the wind catches her sails and my beautiful ship leans over ever so gracefully, and her elegant bow cuts cleanly into the increasing chop of the waves. I take a deep breath and my chest expands and my heart starts thumping so strongly I fear the others might see it beat through the cloth of my jacket. I face the wind and my lips peel back from my teeth in a grin of pure joy.” ― L.A. Meyer, Under the Jolly Roger: Being an Account of the Further Nautical Adventures of Jacky Faber
I love summers in NY. I love the hustle and bustle, and the crowds of people pressing together. I love hearing the diversity of languages, and seeing all the different faces. However, my best moments are spent by the water, watching the boats bobbing, and leaving ripples in their wake. I love the stillness and breathtaking beauty of it all.
The pictures below were taken on my last visit. I am hoping summer arrives soon, so I can live again.
