On the deck it was windswept; the waves were high and the ship going up and down. There was this dreamy boy standing there, so I went next to him and for the next 3 hours we stood watching the waves and getting soaked.

I wouldn't want to go below either. I would be standing next to Thoreau. Your photo is breathtaking Cloudia, what an incredible sky and scene with the boats. Have a great weekend :)
