This might might be cheating on my own project, but hey, I figure I can pick through the archives at least once.

Kirk took this photo of me at Whitehaven Beach in 2006. This gorgeous white sand beach was one of the stops on our three-day sailing excursion through the Whitsunday Islands. I fell in love with sailing on this trip; though it wasn’t the boat or even the islands (though they were beautiful) that started me dreaming of adventure at sea. It was this book I was reading that planted the seed.

I love this photo; it’s full of adventure and freedom, beauty and dreams. ☼
