Great topic idea!
Those first two photos are superb. Almost dream-like.

Ahoy Rich, mate!  Bird of a feather.  Keep 'em coming.

Am I stretching the definition of "maritime," to include Lake Cowichan on Vancouver Island in Canada; one of the largest freshwater lakes on the Island at 30 kilometres (19 miles) long, with a tributary to the ocean? This area is known as the Fly Fishing Capital of Canada. It gained this reputation when King Edward VIII, the English monarch who abdicated the throne in 1936, regularly visited Lake Cowichan with his fly fishing entourage.

In Sept 03, we rented the houseboat "Blue Moon" to ply the waters of Lake Cowichan.

Hey Rich, good to see and hear from you again. Where you at anyway?

Thanks, all, for the comments.

David, I'm in Coos Bay, Oregon, at the moment.  Spent almost two
months at my cousin's in Grants Pass before hitting the road again.
Made my way down to northern California and the redwoods before
starting north up the Oregon coast.  It's taken me over 3 weeks to get
this far.  This is my first motel stop since leaving Grants Pass and I
had lots of e-mail to wade through, laundry to wash and other catching
up with the regular world.  I may be making more motel stops the rest
of the way as the rainy season seems to have set in and my tent was
getting soggy.  Therefore I might find more time to stop by here and
be more involved.

Paddrick, the Blue Moon looks like something I would like to
experience.  I've toyed with the idea of houseboat living.  I think it
would fit my personality.  I'm going to look into the idea more as I
make my way up the coast.

Have a good trip up the Oregon Coast. Lovely, lovely. Look forward
to your pics.

The stretch between Florence and Yachats real nice. Lived in Otter
Rock, Nelscott and Neskowin for a number of years (an idealistic
young soul surfer) way back when (before kids and responsibility
took over). A hike out on Cascade Head well worth it if you get a
chance, as is the drive out Three Capes route off 101 north of
Neskowin (to Cape Lookout, Netarts Bay, Oceanside, etc.). Gonna take
my two youngest kids (more or less grown now) to the coast during
visit to Oregon this Christmas to celebrate grandma's 80th birthday.

I took this one from a tall pier a few blocks from my house. I was standing right above the waves breaking. I use the full size version of this picture as the wallpaper on my laptop.

That's very cool.

These are just phenomenal.

I partucularly like th gulls onthe roof in {2}, both view of the
lighthouse in {11} and {12}, the lone boat in {14} and the movement
of the waves in {16}.

Really nice, Jenny! The lighting is wonderful.

Thanks, Kitty.  Come visit Cape May some time!

I'd love to.  It looks lovely.

I really like the fall her the best, I think.  I was out around the
water several times this past week and I kept thinking - I live in
heaven!

Great topic. Must look through my photos form the Gulf Coast to see
what I can add. {1} is my favorite so far, the reflected lighting on
the rigging was awesome. Liked Jenny's wave too.

Rich, if you're going down the coast of Oregon and Northern
California check out the hostels. There are some great ones in Bandon,
Redwoods, Point Rey, Marin County, etc. Lots cheaper than motels, most
have laundry and internet hookups and you can do your own cooking. I
like the people you meet in hostels too.

Hi, Diane! I've run on that sand to the lighthouse and back. In
fact, one time I shot a roll of photos on the round trip. (Need to
devote some time to scanning and uploading them and others.)

Here's one of my personal favorites. I've posted in on my flog, but don't think I've shared it here. It's one of the barrier islands close to the mouth of the Mobile Bay.
