the Mystic Bridge is going up

going up, going up, the Mystic Bridge is going up, my fair lady!


For some reason, at the last minute I decided to take along my handy Canon G6 point and shoot which has the video option. I hadn't used it in a while, so was a bit shaky, but . . .


Thanks to my very patient, faithful flickr friend, 4REAL, for merging three of *my spontaneous videos* into a somewhat coherent short clip. He did an amazing job with the editing and getting the short production onto YouTube, (which is approximately 3-1/2 minutes long and takes quite a turn mid-way!!!). It's worth watching to see Larry clicking away and Richard taking it all in! See if you can decipher any of our conversation over the schooner's engine noise, before we got under sail!


“Twenty years from now

you will be more disappointed

by the things that you didn't do

than by the ones you did do.

So throw off the bowlines.

Sail away from the safe harbor.

Catch the trade winds in your sails.




~ Mark Twain ~


. . . can't say we didn't try . . . thanks again, 4Real, for following your dream to explore and discover the ocean with us! Seeing the joy and exhilaration you experienced the first time on the sea, was such a gift.
