Favorite Video of the Year (so far)

I featured this a couple months ago and I really like it.  This is on the Amstel River near Amsterdam during last year’s SAIL Amsterdam.  Founded in 2000 to celebrate big classic sailing ships, SAIL Amsterdam is held every five years and — as you can see — has been a wild success. In last year’s event well over 100 classic sailing vessels in excess of 100 feet — schooners, barkentines, Dutch tjalks, clippers, cutters, brigs, fully-rigged ships, kits, luggers, cogs, frigates — participated. A number were more than 100 years old, and many were more than 40 years old. As you can tell, they attracted a lot of spectator boats.  They love sailing in the Netherlands!

Go full screen.

Off to the east coast for some family fun on Lake Sunapee.  This will be the first year my parents will not be joining us.  My Dad is wheel chair bound and my Mom has trouble getting around.  Sorry they will not be there.  Happy 4th of July to all!!
