I don’t know that I ever thought of setting sail in a pirate ship as an Easter activity, but it sure turned out to be a fun day. The weather was gorgeous and the company was the best. John’s Pass is a fun place to visit and I wandered until it was time to board the boat. Oops, ship.
I knew these keyhole shapes in the bridge abutments were there.
They give a nice frame for your picture.
I watched this sailboat coming in and tried, and failed, to get a shot of the drawbridge opening to let it pass.
I stopped to take this picture and hoped that that balcony on the left would give me a view of the draw bridge, but it didn’t.
Normally sailing would seem to me to be such a peaceful way to spend the day, but those jet skis took care of that notion.
Then I had to run because I saw that people were boarding the ship. Not the Dolphin Quest, the pirate ship behind it. I liked this view because I’ve been here for night photography and loved the rigging and flags when the string of lights is lit.
Handsome pirates. I have grandchildren older than they are.
We were in view of land the whole trip.
When I took this shot a lady beside me nodded knowingly and said that she had taken that shot too. LOL.
My new friend and nominee for ‘best costume’ of the day!
I was so happy to see that I’d gotten a dolphin shot, then I saw that his fin is torn and half is drooping.
And then were were back, and hungry. It was time to visit the Friendly Fisherman.
I had a discussion of F-stops with my grandson, I hope he sees this shot.
As I was eating my grouper tacos, YUM, I kept taking pictures of the various birds that perched on that post, putting themselves into a perfect frame. A pelican had stayed there so long that someone asked if it was real.
I guess the pelican was king of the castle because the egret took no chances, it got itself out of the way.
What a fun way to spend the day with family and friends. And nobody had to walk the plank…
