Today’s cold, rainy weather made me reflect on the beautiful weather that Captain Greg Williamson of Ashley Yachts and I had while bringing Slow Dance from Fort Lauderdale to her new homeport, Mount Pleasant. The weather was spectacular as we cruised through Indian River County, Florida. #slowdance #icw #cruisingtheicw #mainship #mainship34 #indianriver #florida #mountpleasantsc #mountpleasant #beautiful #beautifulday #memories #ashley_yachts #blessed #orchidflorida

First, this morning’s “painted” sunrise caught my attention as soon as I opened the bedroom’s plantation shutters. And then I noticed how the king tide had water rushing like a mountain stream from the marsh into our pond. By the time I shot the last the last pic, the tide had almost completely covered the marsh grass. #sunrise #paintedsunrise #tide #hightide #coastal ##mountpleasantsc #mountpleasant #sullivansisland #marsh #icw #cruisingtheicw #myworld #blessed #love #nature #december

Across the dock from us this weekend was the beautifully restored 1935 85-foot, Trumpy designed, Mathis built motoryacht, “Enticer.” It’s a beautiful old wooden yacht worth Googling for more details. #enticer #yacht #historic #trumpy #beautiful #beaufortsc #downtownmarinaofbeaufort #funweekend #woodenboat #spotless #cruisingtheicw #motoryacht

Sunday morning at Beaufort Downtown Marina. Overcast sunrise, but a rainbow opposite the sunrise made up for it. Slow Dance has some beautiful company on the dock this morning! #sunrise #beaufort #beaufortsc #cruisingtheicw #slowdance #ashley_yachts #cruisinglife #beautiful #mainship34 #mainship #boat #yacht #blessed #downtownmarinaofbeaufort #plumsrestaurant

This morning I got up early to shoot the sunrise that never broke through the clouds. Instead, I got to video a flats fisherman heading out of the creek and to his favorite fishing hole. It wasn’t until I reviewed the video that I realized he waved at me. #boat #cruising #moiseisland #icw #cruisingtheicw #flag #starsandstripes #beautiful #americanflag #myworld #cruisingclubofcharleston #ashley_yachts #fisherman #flatsfishing #flatsboat #fishing #mainship #mainship34 #sailboat #trawler #yacht #dinghy #sunset #sunrise #sound #soundmachine #awendaw #mountpleasantsc #mountpleasant #southcarolina

Not an everyday post, but this weekend our cruising club anchored out in Clauson’s Creek and partied on privately owned, Moise Island. Last night we went to sleep and awoke to the sound of wind-driven water lapping against the hull. When I awoke this morning, I pointed my iPhone at the stateroom porthole as I recorded the sound. Our son-in-law describes the sound as “the best sound machine God ever created.” In the darkness, it is mesmerizing. #boat #cruising #moiseisland #icw #cruisingtheicw #myworld #cruisingclubofcharleston #ashley_yachts #party #mainship #mainship34 #sailboat #trawler #yacht #dinghy #sunset #sunrise #sound #soundmachine #awendaw #mountpleasantsc #mountpleasant #southcarolina

Last night as I left Sullivan’s Island, the stormy sunset was captivating. I decided to stop by the marina to check on “Slow Dance,” and get a sunset shot. I shot several with the heavy clouds appearing to hold down the sunset, checked the boat and walked back to my old Land Cruiser, “Moby.” Before leaving, I called my diesel tech to get “Slow Dance” on his calendar for a 100 hour service. I ended the call, looked into the rear view mirror before backing out, and it looked as if the sky was on fire! I killed the engine and ran back down to the docks to capture one last shot. And to think, I almost missed it! The whole series of shots is on @thewriteboat. #sunset #sunsets #marina #boats #boat #mainship #mainship34 #beautiful #beauty #marinalife #boatus #ashley_yachts #mountpleasant #mountpleasantsc #coastal #myworld #yacht #clouds #weather #sullivansisland #icw #cruisingtheicw #thewriteboat #blessed #nature #discover_carolinas

Tonight as I left Sullivan’s Island the stormy sunset was captivating, so I stopped at the marina to check on “Slow Dance,” and get a sunset shot. I shot several with the heavy clouds appearing to hold down the sunset, checked the boat and walked back to the truck. Before leaving, I called my diesel tech to get “Slow Dance” on his calendar for a 100 hour service. I ended the call, looked into the rear view mirror before backing out, and it looked as if the sky was on fire! I killed the engine and ran back down to the docks to capture the last images in this series. The final was taken at the top of the ramp leading back to the parking lot. And to think, I almost missed it! #sunset #sunsets #marina #boats #boat #mainship #mainship34 #beautiful #beauty #marinalife #boatus #ashley_yachts #mountpleasant #mountpleasantsc #coastal #myworld #yacht #clouds #weather #sullivansisland #icw #cruisingtheicw #thewriteboat #blessed #nature
