The very thought of sailing in a boat on tranquil waters evokes both relaxation and freedom — yet, sailing at sunset somehow elevates the experience to a whole new level, as clouds seemingly shuffle to take their places in the orange sky with a deep indigo slowly giving way to the night.
Sailing at Sunset: Sunday Morning Photograph
A brisk wind may be all that is needed for the boat to easily capsize onto its side. That is not a problem, though: righting the boat back up into position to continue sailing is really not all that difficult to do.
Sailing against the wind can be challenging as well; but as long as the boat zigs and zags properly, going in the right direction is not impossible to do.
Many songs have been written and sung about sailing over the years — either romanticizing the activity itself; or emphasizing the sadness of vessels passing in the night or simply moving on.
Final Boarding Call
Sailing can very well be an enjoyable and memorable experience that you must try at least once. In many ways, though, sailing can be quite analogous to life itself.
