“That’s what sailing is, a dance, and your partner is the sea. And with the sea you never take liberties. You ask her, you don’t tell her. You have to remember always that she’s the leader, not you. You and your boat are dancing to her tune.” 
― Michael MorpurgoAlone On A Wide Wide Sea

  1. Love them all but to pick..first and first. I thought FDR was an amazing president and am so thankful for the things he did for our country that we still enjoy today. Ad I am going to go with the house boat as my favorite with the portholes on the Amstel River coming in at a close second.
