    A few weeks ago some friends and I took the boat north of Charleston on the ICW and found a great spot on a deserted tidal creek for an overnight anchorage. We stayed up until very late listening to 80s music, swapping stories, and laughing. This was the first trip on my boat for one of the guys, and as we were having coffee the next morning, his son looked outside and pointed. The father grabbed his camera, unsnapped the port aft side curtain to get a view, and took one shot. He later sent me the photo below.

    Yea boating is great. The person who took the picture was good to get the reflection symmetric with the sky image. I would have just snapped and ended up with whatever. I think the combination of the technical aspects of boating along with the amazing natural surroundings makes for a great combination.

    Sadler,
    From what the little pic shows, that is amazing and what it's all about.

    Unfortunately the high res pic would not work.

    Great stuff either way!
