Not so beautiful photos

Post by Wind Chime » Mon Oct 26, 2015 2:47 pm

As we are currently reminiscing through our "My Documents" folders looking for beautiful pictures of sunsets on our Macs to post in the other thread (sunset pics), how about we also post some photos of your "not so beautiful days" on the water :o ... although beauty is always in the eye of the beholder :wink:

My Mac under a pine tree during Hurricane Charlie in 2004. I think this qualifies as a "not so beautiful picture". :(

Our Erie Canal trip this summer was terminated a few weeks early by a guy who forgot that he had a swim platform on the end of his boat. Luckily it happened while we were at dinner so I didn't have to watch it happen. The offending boater did stick around and pay for the repairs in full once we returned to South Carolina. luckily it was above the water line and a fellow boater happened to have a role of shrink wrap tape handy. Boy is that stuff good!

Some of these pictures hurt my feelings...there are some sad times there.

And some of these are going to be showing up in my nightmares, I just know it.
