Watersports and Sailboats

Yesterday late afternoon, as usual, I looked out from the window.. Well, I enjoy looking at the blue sky, at the cloud and at the sea.. Very peaceful. I noticed something different yesterday. Do you notice anything from the picture above? Yeah, you can see lots of little white dots in the sea. What are those things?

Those white little dots are sailboats. Took the picture above with optical zoom 10x. Mmmm... I found this interesting since I don't get to see these everyday. After enjoying the view from my apartment for a while, I make up my mind to go to the destination for a nearer/clearer view. I brought my camera and drove my car to the nearby beach. I guess uncle will be interested with all these. Uncle, I did something "different" this weekend (since uncle asked us to try to have a different and interesting weekends).

I reach the beach within minutes. All these shots were taken in the beach, under the hot sun.

Jetskiing and Sailing Boat

Kite Boarding

Sailboat

Sailboats and Wind Surfing

Mini Island with Little Coconut Trees?

Anyone interested to take part in the watersports and join in the fun?

Oh yeah! Sailing, flying, and kayaking are my favorite things to do.
As a kid I used to sail small boats similar to those pictured, from Marina Del Rey and Santa Barbara Harbor in California. Sailing is a wonderful sport.

Thanks for the memories...

Chen said...

That's a great view from your home! An even excellent zoom from your camera! What time was it when you decided to venture into the blazing heat? Did you put on sunscreen?

Jacky said...

The view from your apartment is marvelous. You surely have fully utilised your camera's 10x optical zoom :)

Agus,
Around 3 pm in the late afternoon.. Nope, didn't put on sunscreen.. I stand somewhere nearby the coconut tree (oops... dangerous spot - I mean the possible falling coconuts) to shoot the picture..

jacky,
Yeap, nice view :)
That's why I enjoy staying here..
Must fully utilise what I have ;)
Most of the time, I under utilise it at the past :D
