My Favorite Photo

Discovery in Papetoi Bay 01870002 When we were in Tahiti we sailed often to Moorea, and on one trip Bob waited patiently for just the right picture of Discovery in Papetoi Bay, with its stern line tied to a tree and another anchor off our bow. I think he captured the essence of this beautiful place with this photograph, the light on the boat and the dark clouds above the mountain. I chose it as the photo to use for my business card to represent my book In the Wake of Discovery: Two Adults, Two Children, and 25,000-Miles on a Small Boat.
While we were still living in Hawaii, Bob painted a watercolor of this photograph and gave it to me for our 20th anniversary. Now, years later, it still hangs on the wall in our home and is one of my favorite paintings. It reminds me of what we did and what anyone can do –– follow their dreams and do amazing things.
I’m still working on the final chapters of the book and hope to have them finished, maybe edited, by summer. It’s fun writing, but difficult as there is so much I want to say and I know I can’t put it all into just one book.
That’s it. This is a short blog and its main purpose is just to display this amazing photo.
