Blue Knight by bobfoto

Blue Knight

Sailing along in our little sail boat, the Blue Knight under power strolled passed us. So did the rest of the flotilla.

But even if we made it back to the yacht club last, we still had Santa on board and plenty of rum.

Photo taken 7 December 2008
Loving all the blue.

This obviously wasn't a race! Looks like very little wind. Good for rum filliins!

Good to keep them waiting for a drink! Lovely blues divided by the clouds.

Wow... fabulous shot. Love that boat.
December 7th, 2012

I like the monochromatic tones and the line of clouds.

Great ship photo!

December 7th, 2012

December 7th, 2012

Beautiful colors. Perfect time to come in last - Santa and booze on board, so who cares?!

slapping a fav on this bad boy

Sounds like quite the adventure with Santa and rum!

@kjarn - I'm going through a blue phase it would seem.

@maggiemae - not a race at all. Just a fun day out with Santa.

@redsherpa - Thanks Toni :)

@netkonnexion - Thanks Net.

@houdiniem - Hello salty goodness!

@grammyn @httpgeffed @archaeofrog - Thanks Katy, Colleen and Katie and yes, a nip of rum on the high seas with Santa was just the tonic. GnT's back at the Yacht Club was also a tonic.

@catsmeowb - Cookies and Milk for landlubber Santa, but its always Rum on the high seas!

@olivetreeann - I think the Santa Maria may have been a little bigger perhaps?

@cmuir1963 - Not our Santa, he was in his Big Red Jacket for half the day and had heaps of kidlets jumping up and down on to his lap for photos and gifts. He earned a Rum or two on the sail home.

@loztsoul - Thanks Trevor. :D

@swguevin - It was a great day out.

ahhhh, jason, you never fail to make me laugh. see, i think santa lands briefly but is really considered a pilot - though i don't think he has to steer. the reindeer do all that.
December 7th, 2012  
@catsmeowb - got me stumped how those reindeer can fly...
December 7th, 2012  
@bobfoto it's the magic of CHRISTMAS!
December 7th, 2012  
@catsmeowb - Santa's a Wizard now?
December 7th, 2012  
Have to laugh at all the above!! Great shot!!
December 7th, 2012  
Simply stunning

@michelleyoung - Thanks Michelle :)

Gorgeous blue open spanse, that boat looks pretty crowded.
December 8th, 2012  
@tthompsonca - it was a decent party on board! When we all got to fishos, I swam over from my wee little yacht and climbed aboard this ship for some food and wine. It was very lavish on board!

It is a wonder Santa made it to the pier at all. Your photo has a tropical feel to it, maybe because of the canvas spread for shade.
December 8th, 2012  
@rvwalker - This was the journey home... Santa's job was already done.
December 8th, 2012  
Great shot - fun comments!!
December 8th, 2012

Excellent call on the rum. You can never have enough rum.
December 9th, 2012  
@webfoot - not out at sea, that's for sure.
December 9th, 2012  
Nice boat and shot FAV
December 9th, 2012  
@hobgoblinwychwo - is a nice boat indeed!
December 10th, 2012  
looks crowded on deck there
December 10th, 2012  
@lbmcshutter - looks like a party!
December 10th, 2012  
Love all the shades of blue! Very nice capture!
December 15th, 2012  
@jgilker - Thank you Jessika, the waters in the tropics are often a lovely blue!
December 15th, 2012  
This photo looks wonderful up big. So this is where Santa has his pre-match drink, huh. Don't blame him..
December 28th, 2012  
@filsie65 - and his post-match tipple too.
December 28th, 2012  
Rum!

@hellcat - I wasn't Santa by the way....
January 3rd, 2013  
NO! You'd make a great Santa.
January 4th, 2013  
@hellcat - need to love me food a little more....
January 4th, 2013  
Santa could become a fitter santa... You know, to let the girls and boys know that jumping down chimney's burns a ton of calories. (OH!! Rise of the Guardians... Santa is a fittish Russian with tattoos... and he's badas$.)

(Hugh Jackman was the Easter Bunny... also bada$$)
January 4th, 2013  
@hellcat - I once posted a fcbk selfie where some kind soul suggested I looked a bit Hugh Jackmanesque... I suggested it were simply my accent showing.
January 4th, 2013  
:D Awww... that was nice of someone. Jackman's a hotty. It's a nice accent.
January 5th, 2013  
@hellcat - I was well flattered.
