The View from Above
03 February 2015 | John Pennikamp Park
Today was a day to go up the mast. Light winds and calm seas, I donned my harness, gathered some tools and had Susannah winch me up the mast (backed up with a set of climbing jumers on a second halyard in case she might be thinking of cashing in the life insurance policy :). After replacing the navigation light at the masthead, I had a chance to snap a few photos from above. The water was so clear you can see the bottom. A few birds flew by beneath me--looking down on the birds even!
