open water to Iona
The monastery of Iona
Birthcenter of Christianity in Scotland
In route to Mann
or at least that was the question of the hour. Scotland has chosen to remain a part of the larger United Kingdom which is something of a surprise. Several years ago, Jackie and I had the opportunity to visit Scotland and it was while en route to the Isle of Mann which led to the ferry to the Isle of Iona that we passed this castle. Iona is the birthplace of Christianity in Scotland.
Jackie and I felt a strange kinship with Scotland, a familiarity with which we weren’t familiar. Sounds strange as I say it, more like if We had been placed there by other circumstances in life we should have felt quite at home. We look forward to another time and another visit someday.
All photographs are available upon request.
Sailing speaks many things. Adventure, escape, teamwork, skill, relaxation, working with nature and understanding what your given and adjusting to it.
I first experienced it in the Navy. At seventeen, 286 of us sailed half way around the world and it was the first time that I had been in a place where land was not to be seen. Reliance and teamwork become code for survival and theses pictures are reminders of our need for one another.
