Don't just read words, watch these videos below:

I was born in New York but my hometown is the ocean- sailing any ocean. So I am not a NYer but I played one in real life this week.  Driving in New York City was thrilling, with hours of boredom followed by moments of exhilaration (Maybe that is too kind a word).
Jogging In Central Park-a simple pleasure

The Circle Line doesn't go in a circle or a line
 but  it covers the whole of Manhattan island
Sarah and I were last in New York Harbor July 2014
After six sea days at sea, it was great to see first land, on this special July crossing of The Atlantic with Sarah E Kennedy On Cunard's Queen Mary 2 Oceanliner.
7/17/7/14:Sailing Into NYC Harbor at the mouth of the Hudson River, was Spectacular---  I remember it a lot more than my uneventful return today by ordinary means....Our smokestack just cleared the Verranzano Narrows Bridge by a few feet!

Top Gun and Superintendent of the US Naval Academy  Admiral Ted Carter
With Captain Alan Berning on The Chesapeake-Annapolis-and the birthplace of sailing
My week in Annapolis has been awesome- The entire campus of the US Naval Academy  is a National Historic Landmark,  It is worth visiting.

The YES in Yesterday- Sailing in The Persian Gulf

Big Wheel Keep On Turning
The random-est (and most fascinating) place I've ever been this year is Dubai-man-made islands, indoor ski park,tallest skyscraper in the world, Burj Kalifia the coolest hotel Burj Arab, the biggest malls on the planet..Ok Do I have your attention.... 

See links;

Then there is The Sand

The sacred animal and ship of the desert, Camels,juxtaposed by the SUV's going in opposite directions seems so poetic and symbolic as the past and the future meet in the all encompassing Then and Now in harmony.

The desert seems empty but hides many possibilities, I am reminded of Namibia and Dune 7

Running by  the chalk headlands in Southern England,
What an impressive coastline.
Another amazing day-this time overlooking the white-chalky-cliffs of Beachy Head, From the top of the hills, you could easily loose your footing, and the talc erodes constantly with rainfall. This time I opted for the beach.

Was here this past September too.

In November 2014

Great time out in The Dessert this weekend to avoid "You know you have been in Saudi Arabia too long" syndrome".

Nevertheless, you know you have been in The Kingdom too long when....
 1. You don't see any problem with a goat riding in the passenger seat.
 2.You think being liberated means sitting in the female section
 3.You expect to go to jail when a local national hits the back of your car at a stop sign.
 4. You think a red light is just a "suggestion."
 5.You resign your position a year in advance
