Sail Away

Wild Weekly Photo Challenge – Escape

Thinking about Escape. Am I wanting to escape from something, or do I want to escape to someplace, or am I contemplating the act of escape?

Often I like to escape for a short while by watching a movie or reading a book.

I often think of sailing as the ultimate means of escape…freedom.

Where do I want to escape to? Beaches usually top my list as do lush tropical islands.

Where is your favorite escape?

  1. Stunning shots Ron! I bet ‘Sail Away’ is the winner 🙂

    1. agree! Stunning! Makes you want to drift with the winds. Thanks Ron!

      1. Thanks Harold. Sailing has long been a fantasy of mine and the image just reinforces it.

    2. Thanks Madhu. our comments are appreciated.

  2. Wonderful, Ron! I love films as well! Especially in a beautiful, old, independent cinema with big sofa style seats and footrests! We have one here in Edinburgh. Most of all, I escape and refresh in nature , especially where there are trees. Mountains and hills too. And I love the sea to swim in when it is not too sunny! 🙂 Thanks for asking … hehe! 🙂

    1. Thank you Gigi, for commenting. Yes, getting close to nature is soothing for most of us.

    1. Thank you Lynne and thanks for taking the time to visit.

  3. Love your escape photos, Ron. Paradise on earth. 🙂

    1. Thank you AD. Not able to escape at the moment so doing the post was the next best think. 🙂

  4. Beautiful shots!! I want to ‘sail away’ to the ‘Bahamas’!! 🙂

    1. Ah, now you are thinking like me. 🙂

  5. Beautiful…. The ‘Sail Away’ held my breath..!!!

  6. Wow! Sail Away is a winner. 🙂

    1. Thank you for your comment and for visiting.

  7. Wonderful pictures and interpretation! And hey, you’ve been to Bali, Indonesia, while I have never been there though I am from Indonesia. 😀

    I love the colours on your pictures. 🙂

    1. Thank you Inge. Where in Indonesia are you from? Bali is beautiful but I sense it is not the real Indonesia. I hope to explore more of your country someday soon.

      1. You are very most welcome, Ron. 🙂

        Yes, Bali is not the real Indonesia if you haven’t explored another places in Indonesia. 😀 . I’m joking. 😀

        I am from Sulawesi (Celebes), South Sulawesi. 🙂

  8. I love the sailing shots… so serene… 😉 Thank you for checking in during the Hurricane… your kind wishes were appreciated!

    1. Thank you and I trust things are returning somewhat to normal for you.

  9. Ah, you have a nice selection of soothing escapes! If only we could step inside the image and set sail on a tranquil escape! z

    1. Some of us enviously think you are already there in your cozy little river house.

      1. Ja! I laughed at that one! Yes, I am lucky. With a well stocked pantry and plenty of cooking gas, i can endure an el nino year pretty well if the roads should wash out. With that big window, I can paint and watch the trees washing downriver and hope that the riverbank stays in place!!!
        I should probably buy lots more candles and matches, just to be prepared!
