In For The Night – A New Wallpaper

“In For The Night” From the beach at Four Seasons Resort, Nevis West Indies

My computer wallpaper was getting a little stale so I decided it was time for a change.  That, along with a little nudge from a co-worker (lookin’ at you, Carlin! 😉 )

I took this photograph on our recent visit to Nevis.  Kathy & I were walking on the beach one evening just before sunset, and I saw these four sailboats anchored offshore.  The clouds in the background vaguely suggest a coming storm, but there was some nice color in the sky and there didn’t appear to be much in the way of actual storms around.  The Rules of Photography might dictate that three boats would be more appealing, but the spacing of these four boats seemed just right to me.

The thought that went through my mind when I saw this scene was “All Tucked In,” but since there were people out and about on the decks I decided that wasn’t quite accurate.  I imagined that they had just finished up with a day of sailing and were ready to settle in for the evening, or perhaps come ashore and visit one of the nearby beach bars for dinner.

Kathy & I have done day trips on these catamarans and always felt that it would be fun to take an extended journey on one.  But we never seem to find a few more couples willing to share, so we haven’t been.  Any takers? 🙂

  1. Count me and Vanessa in! She’s always talking about spending some time at sea. She could convince me quite easily. 🙂

  2. Let’s get together soon and talk it over. I know you are away for a couple of weeks starting soon, and we’re on baby watch until mid-January so we won’t be straying too far from home. Look out come February though!
