It's over

Summer has gone with a bang and most are putting there ribs to bed so what's been your best summer memory.

Mine Newtown Creek watching the sun go down.
Cheers
Tim

I may only have a humble SIB but each year it provides me with many great memories.

I cant decide which is my best.. but I did enjoy my first wild camp of the season.. toasting toes by the campfire. .while slurping Sunset beer ... as the sun slid below a grey horizon..



Or perhaps puttering around in my seago 2.7 SIB in a flat calm around midnight ..the sun hardly disappeared because it was near the solstice .



But ask the same question next week.. and I would probably post different memories.. I treasure each and every journey ... and they are all my best memories ...roll on next spring

PS..love the dolphin photo Jambo

Winter is diving season, as the wind calms down and the vis improves! The boating trips are year around in California

Plus it is supposed to be 32*C for the rest of the week.

There is still lots to explore, sail on...
