It almost looks like you could ice skate on the water. Beautiful shot and the sail boats as well as the light and how you shot it make this very romantic to me.

Thank you for this beautiful escape in the middle of the night. Years since last smelled fog, months since last felt the sea ... Please have a great Friday.

Carolyn -- that's such a beautiful Marina. We've seen a lot of them (always hanging out by the water), but I think LB is one of the best. We tried to stay in the RV Park near there last Feb. on our way from Oregon (we have relatives who live in Naples), but it was full (so sad)...maybe next time. We always go and look at it when we're there visiting my aunt.
