Today we went out on my sister Anne and her Husband Gary's yacht. The weather was a little ordinary so we just motored out to the Heads and back. Their yacht is a 14 metre sloop manufactured by Hallberg- Rassy in Sweden. It a beautiful boat and I was pretty happy not to get sea sick as I havn't been out on the ocean for ages. The light was very grey but not bad for portraits. My family has many generations of sailors in our ancestral pool and some are still involved in the shipping business in Germany. My brother has some old oil paintings featuring some of my family's sailing ships hanging on the walls of his pool room,I think they are dated around the early 1800's.
