There's no app for this - Part III/Splendid Sunset

My husband loves to sail and while we were at St. John we enjoyed a sunset sail aboard the Heron - a big and beautiful sailboat that was handmade by its owners/captains in Maine .... a fantastic work of practical art! Each year the Heron sails down to the islands and the Husband/Wife Captains and their family live aboard it for the duration of their stay.  They have two girls that they've homeschooled over the years. I gather they finance their rather unique lifestyle, in part, by doing charter snorkel and sunset sails. Whatta life! We couldn't have asked for a better day or for better weather for our sail. In the end we were all the richer for the magnificent moments etched in our memories - a good investment :)

What an intense color in the sky and the water! Ah, to take off my coat and feel the warmth of that sun :)

I can see how refreshing this trip would be!
