    blunderbuss2
    (189 items)

    Christmas Eve our style. Everybody loves a square rigger & this one just came in & anchoured where I could get a good shot during sunset. The wind was pretty strong so hard to keep the camera steady. One of my favourite sights is watching the crew on the ratlines furling or unfurling the main sheets when they arrive or depart. Never fails to give some gene a tingle!

    Hope everybody has a good one! White stuff around our feet is called sand and those aren't snow clouds.

      You have that right kyra but the amateur drunk drivers are a threat even to us pros! Dusting off the naval blunderbuss for that midnite send off of the old year.

      CW should ban one of us & I'm not sure who. Probably both! LOL. Whacky has a job on a yacht for 4 days going to St. Barths. Come to think of it, she didn't say what her job is? In this cold weather (76F) she will be double pointing at every body she talks to.
    24. Roycroftbooksfromme1 Roycroftbooksfromme1, 5 years ago
      sounds like the island life is okkkkkkkkkkkk....
    25. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Roy, just looked up meaning of "back door man" & did a whole lot of that to!
    26. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      It ain't bad Roy. Most people thing it's like the travel ads. Actually, it's just another place to live & work (maybe). We don't even think about it or notice it. A hash brownie does put you in the ad scene for awhile! The rough times are when friends visit thinking you just lie on the beach smoking ganja, drinking beer, partying all nite, --- & expecting you to keep up with them. Nothing really glamorous about living here! Just another place to live & keep the departure tax money set aside. 42 yrs I've been in the Caribbean basin with 24-5 yrs here & just don't think about it. Hope my lack of enthusiasm doesn't disappoint you or my other "fans". Well, at least the weather prediction says "less than 10% chance of snow" everyday!
    27. SEAN68 SEAN68, 5 years ago
      very beautiful!!!
    28. Zowie Zowie, 5 years ago
      I'm with you what a great view you must have at first I thought it was a painting but much better being able to have it as a view. I'm hoping you had a great Christmas & have a wonderful new year I could sit & watch your view all day.
    29. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Such enthusiasm Zowie! Love it! Little late for Xmas but Happy New Year to you & our "gang"on CyberAsylum. Just called Inky & Ralph in NZ to wish them a happy New Year & was 9-11 hrs too early. Can't win them all! That dateline still has me confused (which isn't hard).
    30. inky inky, 5 years ago
      Beautiful photos blunder...Happy New Year my good friend!...xoxo
    31. Virginia.vintage Virginia.vintage, 5 years ago
      From the mate´s land Happy New Year to you blunder, my best wishes!!!
    32. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Thanks Virginia and the best New Year to you! I've almost saved enough for the departure tax! Just don't know where to go & they say my Eastern Airlines return ticket isn't any good now.
    33. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Yes, I let loose with both blunderbusses last nite. No villagers with pitchforks at my gate last nite but don't doubt a visit from the police when they get caught up with other mischief done by rowdy tourists. LOL!
    34. Zowie Zowie, 5 years ago
      I'm always in the land of the confusion so it doesn't matter & I think it's never to late to wish anybody the best. Like here tourist can cause mischief wherever they go as long as it's not on their front doorstep Take care.
    35. SEAN68 SEAN68, 5 years ago
      happy new year BB2 :)
    36. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Yeah Zowie, isn't it amazing the things that people do that they would never even think about doing at home! Seen them do things publicly that I doubt they would do in their bedrooms at home! It's free entertainment for us!
    37. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Same back at you SEAN!
    38. Zowie Zowie, 5 years ago
      You can say that again as long as it's not on there front doorstep. What gets me is the ones that come on holiday & go to the free food trucks for the needy that's pretty low to me if they can afford to take such a trip then they can fed themselves or go without or just don't take the holiday. Leave it to those that need it.
    39. Manikin Manikin, 5 years ago
      Hiya bb2 have missed seeing you but wanted to wish you a happy New year ! xo
    40. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Mani, I've missed you too! How are things? When are you coming down? Oops, "Not fb"!! LOL!!
    41. Manikin Manikin, 5 years ago
      I am still on the mend bb2 been a tough one . I try to come on now and then . I sure would love to be there right now it is -6 degree;s here :-( xoxo Take care buddy and see ya soon
    42. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      "Still on the mend" Mani? From what? Sorry to be late getting back to you. Well, if you need to get away from the cold to help mend, the airport code is SXM here. Show you the "Rock". It also has 37 beaches. xoxo

      Hello BB2: Ever have any want, or reason to visit Antigua? Your picture reminded me of Sailing Week, and the Steel Drum Music at Nelsons Dockyard. Take Care, and have a Red Stripe for me!

    50. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Izenglish, I can flip down there for free by boat or plane almost at will as lots of our planes go there & have friends who can get me on boats going there. Problem can be getting back when we want to return as we can't set their schedules. Heineken regatta coming up here in less than 2 weeks.
    51. Manikin Manikin, 4 years ago
      Looks like a dream place compared to the frigid weather I am looking out my window at ! Hope your doing well and trying hard to keep out of trouble <wink>
    52. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
      Mani, it's really cold here! 25C/74F! "Warm body weather" as we said in Jamaica. "out of trouble"? I think our gate guards are required to notify the police when I leave so they can issue warnings! LOL!
    53. vintagelamp vintagelamp, 4 years ago
      just "wow!"
    54. Vintagefran Vintagefran, 4 years ago
      Snap Vintagelamp. Wow! Great photos blunderbuss. What a sight, I'd love to have been there.
    55. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
      You can be Fran. Just another day.

      BB2, I'm a little slow, but love this style of ship, I might break down and board one of these.....
    57. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
      Well you caught the boat & welcome aboard, kerry. This is a barque.
    58. paulmartin paulmartin, 4 years ago
      How can you live under such harsh conditions ? Beautiful pictures !
    59. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
      It's not easy paulmartin but I manage to suffer thru. You obviously haven't been thru one of Mother Nature's blow jobs. LOL!
    60. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 4 years ago
      blunderbuss, you seem to know a little about ships. I posted an enamel medallion with a sailing ship of some sort on it, if you have a moment, would be nice if you could post your thoughts. Thanks in advance. :)
    61. surfdub66 surfdub66, 4 years ago
      AWSOME pics !! :-))
    62. surfdub66 surfdub66, 4 years ago
      Looks like the "Black Pearl" me Arty !! AAAAAARRRRRRRRR;-))
    63. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
      To be honest, I was really surprised by the feedback on those pics.. Just another day in the Wayward Islands! LOL! Guess after 42 yrs in the Caribes, one just doesn't really see things the way others do.
    64. Caperkid, 4 years ago
      Fine collection you have ,love anything with masts.
    65. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
      Hi, Caper. You would luv it here then. Thanks.
    66. Caperkid, 4 years ago
      Send me a ticket im there Jimmy Buffet style.You are very fortunate. Enjoy life.
    67. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
      Booked up till the 1st!
    68. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
      Brunswick, you obviously don't live here! LOL!! Actually, it's OK & we don't have snow.
    69. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
      Another day on, "The friendly "fk'g' Island"!! LOL!! Seasons coming in & traffic getting bad, but scoot around it on my trusty 180cc steed. LOL! Still recovering from my last "scoot around" when I hit a car with no lights on. That's why I'm on CW everyday now.
    70. NevadaBlades, 4 years ago
      LOVE 1 & 2, ESPECIALLY #2. If you haven't, you should have it framed and hung on your wall.
    71. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
      Good idea Nevada. Would look good on my gallery. Thanks.
    72. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
      Nevada. You have me looking objectively at these pix. After the general response & you last remark made me go back & look. I actually didn't think anything about the pix except that they were half decent considering the 20-25 knt winds that day. I am going to take your advice & have #2 enlarged, framed & hang on my gallery (Until the next hurricane @ least!). I thought people were just enjoying pix of a square-rigger & never gave any thought to any pix qualities. Guess I was lucky & thanks for pointing out the subliminal that just flew over my head for a year!
    73. Nicefice, 4 years ago
      Great Picture! Minneapolis currently is at -15 deg F. Have a great day! :)
    74. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
      Nicefice, I'm in St. Thomas right now & just had to close a door because of the cold wind. It's about 26 here ! That's 26 C, or about 80 F. Hey, if you have it, flaunt it ! LOL!!
