Hey Captain Ken! It’s me, Alicia, sending you another bird picture. It’s a Great Egret and it is looking for lizards and insects to eat right out in front of my house. Yuk! But I guess if you are a bird like this one, that kind of food is most likely exactly what it likes. I see it and others almost everyday when I look out my window before going to school. This time, I went out through the garage so I would not scare it away. I hope you like this picture and if I see any other interesting things, I will send it to you. Thanks Captain Ken! -Alicia M., Riviera Beach, FL

As if New York City couldn’t be any more spectacular, check out this photo taken by my good buddy Bjoern Kils in the lower Hudson River a couple of days ago. We were crossing over from the Jersey City side when Mother Nature decided to put on quite the atmospheric show.

Bjoern runs the in-your-face, awesome, take-your-breath-away, uber exciting, thrill-a-minute NY Media Boat Tours. If you are visiting the Big Town and are looking for something to do that is so different you’ll be talking about your experience out on the water for a long time, give him a call and tell him Capt. Ken sent you around. I guarantee, you will not be disappointed. Check out his Website at http://www.nymediaboat.com. Cell/text: +1 732.586.7394  // bjoernkils@gmail.com

This is a great venue for those of us…and anyone just interested…in wishing to add to the already remarkable and different photographs that have been displayed since you put up this category. Being familiar with your work in the magazines as well as all the video projects you have done over the years, we have been following your blog site for some time now and find this particular opportunity most enjoyable. While taking some well-deserved time to visit the South Florida environs during this awful winter, we were walking the docks at the Miami Beach Marina and snapped this picture. We like the way the superstructure, especially the electronics array, of this big yacht is juxtaposed against the blue sky and clouds; technology and nature. Keep up the good work and we look forward to checking in on a regular basis. –Ryan and Emily N., Traverse City, Michigan

I’ve made my life at the water’s edge. Yes, I’ve had a long and rewarding career in business, raised a family, provided well for them. We have grandkids; several. We have our issues, as do all families, but for the most part, have learned how to deal with them. Tragedy has not visited us as yet. In the summers, here in the northeast, they visit often and bring us joy and happiness. Our home is modest by some standards but there are bedrooms for all and mattresses on the floor as well. One of our most favorite activities is to go out on the long expanse of beach and walk, looking for anything that might catch our eyes…our imaginations…our lives. For me, it’s beach glass and these delicate and lovely sand dollars which I trade, laughter and fairness intact, with the kids for their own found treasures. It all works out in the end and everyone is happy with what they have gotten. –John and Mary P., Cape May, NJ

Firstly, let me commend you for this informational, very entertaining, well-written site. Even those who are not involved in the boating lifestyle, will find something here to enjoy with your postings. And that especially means these Photo Op images. Keep up the good work. It seems as if many of the people sending in pictures have an emotional connection with what they are doing, where they’ve been, and, as with the young lady whose pelican and cat posts were most enjoyable, seeing things with fresh eyes. My entry concerns the rise and fall of the tides. I think this is a most wondrous event, occurring around the clock, and in all the world’s oceans. And no matter how much I understand what is happening, I am still amazed at the whole experience. Thank you again for sharing these moments with anyone out there lucky enough to find them. –Patricia T., San Diego, CA

For me, being out on the ocean was always a family affair. Both my mother and father are avid boaters and my earliest memories are based on my connection to the water. They are the most amazing and life-affirming memories; adventurous and full of wonderment of so many experiences as we traveled about. And, of course, they continue. So many times, as I did as a child, when I find myself clear of the land, I often look up into the sky and get lost in the clouds. How wonderful!

We are on our way back to the States from an extended fishing trip to Central America and spotted this sign at a local marina on the Pacific Ocean side of Mexico. I thought it might make a good posting for you as a message to our Congress: No Shouting, No Running, No Pushing. Instead, how about enjoying a good day out on the water to put things in perspective. –Capt. Armando L., Long Beach, CA

Hello Captain Ken! It’s me, Alicia and I was so excited when my parents showed me the picture of the pelican I sent you. Thank you thank you thank you! I am so happy. So, now here’s my cat. His name is Snickers. We got him at a shelter when he was just a kitten. He is very playful and likes to run around in our back yard and sit in the living room window when it is raining. I know this is not a boat picture but until I can take some more, I sent this one to you for now. I am busy with school so it might take me a little while until I get to the boat place. –Alicia M., Riviera Beach, FL

We’re done for the day. Last catch. Last release. On the way back, I think about those fish we sent back. Are they alright? Did we weaken them too much so that now, they won’t be able to defend themselves against the sharks who must be aware of not only the battle; the jumping and thrashing about indicating possible prey in trouble, but the blood that has also been spilled from a hooked mouth as well? I have been at this a long time now and with my grown kids now having kids, I wonder if there will be fish for them to think about when they get older. One of my sons and one of my daughters have fished with me. The other daughter does not. And that is okay. She and her husband often come down to the boat, with the grandkids, after it has been cleaned up, to see me and the crew. I put them in the skipper’s helm seat up on the bridge and we take pictures. They will have at least that to think about, I am sure. Thanks for these posting opportunities.
