Captain Ken- Have enjoyed your varied postings on this site, particularly your personal and original writing as in the STAY SALTY story, and especially the many photographs. Here is one we snapped this past January on our way back from fishing in the waters around Bimini. We were in the dock and our mate spotted the crescent moon rising with the planet Venus and we all got our cameras and phones out. Thought this was the best of them. – A.B.

Mio caro Capitano Ken: Tu e la tua bella famiglia ho incontrato qualche tempo fa nella città di Deia a Palma de Mallorca. Abbiamo avuto una meravigliosa cena lì e siamo rimasti più gentile con qualche consiglio per me e mio marito con un piccolo problema sulla nostra barca. Eravamo da poco cercando su Internet e scoperto il vostro sito e le belle foto, molti dei vostri lettori eravamo condividere con voi. La prego di accettare questo come un ricordo del nostro tempo e nella speranza che un giorno possiamo ancora una volta condividere una cena, un po ‘di vino, e buone storie sui nostri viaggi. Cordiali saluti a voi e la vostra famiglia. –A. Vincenti, San Remo, Italia

(My dear Capt. Ken: I met you and your lovely family some time ago in the town of Deia on Palma de Mallorca. We had a wonderful dinner there and you were most kind with some advice to my husband and myself with a small problem on our boat. We were recently looking on the Internet and discovered your site and the beautiful photos many of your readers were sharing with you. Please accept this one as a memory of our time there and in hopes that one day we may once again share a dinner, some wine, and good stories about our travels. Best regards to you and your family. -A. Vincenti, San Remo, Italy)

A stroll along the beach resulted in this picture. I found it interesting to note all the textures, patterns, and materials present: the weathered and whorled wood; the rusting iron; the rocks; the sand, all being impacted on by nature and all showing different results. Your blog is most attractive for those of us who are into the boating lifestyle and I would assume, many who just happen to find the site. I am sure all these pictures reach across the interest level as well. Your featured image here–the vintage camera–is also quite creative. Thanks for your years of outstanding writing with the magazines and now, for this most informative site.

My friends and I have been following your postings and are really enjoying all the personal photographs that are being sent in. I thought you might find this one interesting: We are regulars in the waters off of Carbon Beach in Malibu and with the wind and surf down a bit, decided to take a break. I snapped off this shot and hope you and everybody else checking in, likes it. –J. ‘Gus’ Medwick, Carbon Beach, Malibu, CA

Choices. Sometimes easier to make than others. Take my dilemma with this situation. Should I surf or swim? For me, either way, I win. Keep up the excellent work here. I am enjoying your postings and look forward to each one. No choice. I will be back. Good onya mate! –K. Morse, Bondi Beach, Australia

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

Bula! That is how we say ‘hello’, here in Fiji. I recently Googled a key word and your site came up in the search. After looking through some of the posts, I went through those in the Photo Op listing and would like to share this one with you. Sota Tale. See you again. –Selina P., Fiji

To be sure, there’s magic found in many places but none more than that discovered in nature. For all of my life, I have beheld wonderment, been amazed, stood in awe, and had my breath taken away by what I have seen and experienced. The first time I saw a shark come up from the depths and swim around my boat; being caught in a thunderstorm; been out at sea, and out of sight of land; explored coral reefs and sailed under the Southern Cross. I never tire of sunrises, sunsets, the phases of the moon, the change of seasons, and the endless procession of cloud formations that are in constant motion across the skies. I was visiting family when I took this picture. After a brief rainstorm, I stepped outside and saw this double rainbow in the distance. Yet another remarkable moment for my wonderful memories which, here, I am very pleased to be sharing with everyone.Kyle M., Bundoran, County Donegal, Ireland

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!

Dear Capt. Ken: We were visiting your New York CIty this past summer and, while recently viewing some of the postings on this wonderful site of yours, noticed all the various and thoroughly enjoyable contributions to the Photo Op section that have been put up. It was quite moving that our travel plans coincided with the 9/11 tribute. We were out on the water, on one of the ferry service boats crossing from the New Jersey side and going over to the Wall Street area when we took this picture with our iPhone. We think the image speaks for itself.
