As we were heading there, the sky, sun and sea put on a show for us:
I'm not sure why but I started thinking about how music and the Sea are connected. There are many songs about the Sea and sailing:
"Southern Cross" "Come Sail Away," "I'd Rather Be Sailing","Sailing to Philadelphia" just to name a few...
...and a lot of boats we have met with musical names:
A Capella, Duet, Music, Mandolina, SongLine, Harmony, Dulce Maestra, Drumbeat
And I think of the Sea Symphony I sang with the Colorado Symphony and Chorus. Blessed Ralph Vaughan Williams! Faure, Debussy, Brahms and Schumann loved the Sea and also wrote songs about her beauty (among many others).
And, I seem to be as happy on the Sea as anywhere, because I tend to write a lot of songs!
"I've Set Sail"
"The Sun, the Moon and You"
"Throw off the Dock Lines"
"All the way to Tahiti"
"I Miss You"
...just a few of my favorites !
We are going to work on some music videos to share my songs with you.
We arrived in Daniel's Bay and it is much calmer and not as rolly here. Happy to be back. The dramatic cliffs are so powerful!
