    Wow what a holiday,, we just came back from. We had rather large group with us and I had heck of a time trying to get away so I could get some shots. However there were only a few yachts when I first arrived. I managed to get a day towards the end of my trip to get these shots.
    We did a small pub tour of some of Neil Rooney's spots.
    Started at Spinnaker's by the bridge,, went on to Buccaneers, The Sand Bar at Isle de Sol then on to Toppers,, and back to Spinnakers for the two openings at 4:30 and 5:30. Met some of the crew from April Fool and enjoyed some bevys with them.
    Can't believe I missed Limitless coming in again!
    Anyhow hope you enjoy the photos.

    PSDO,
    Some great shots there. Thanks for sharing with us. BTW, what type of camera did you use?
    I do recognize some of the rafter decorations. And like the outline on the bar.
    Happy Holidays!

    Wow someone is actually looking at my shots.
    Thanks for the reply.
    My camera is just a simple Olympus Stylus 500.
    I've been doing photography for a long time and I just like the simplicity of the Stylus,,

    I've been enjoying your shots too Steve! Sorry I didn't post. I'm away from the computer for the holiday, using my PDA. The keyboard is so small on this over-grown cell phone... I don't post!

    Merry Christmas guys!

    Hey no problem,,it's a busy time of year for everyone.
    I feel bad that I don't have more to contribute,, wish I was at Neil's place everyday, to see all the action at the bridge,, it really is the ULTIMATE yacht spotting place. Not mention the yachty hotties that hang out there!!

    White Cloud certainly has an unusual stern configuration!

    What i would like to know is what was that metal bar protruding from the back of the White Cloud in psdo's pics. I saw a crewmember on it so the first thing that came to my mind was mabe it is a passerelle but then again, that is too high for a passerelle. So, what is it then?
