This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge theme from The Daily Post is ‘Inside’. It’s quite a tricky theme for me since most of our pictures were taken outside.
Then I found this picture. It was taken inside the cockpit of our boat, behind the spray hood. We were sailing back home last summer on a clear, but very windy day. The boat was heeling on a 40-degree angle and the waves were sending sprays all over the boat. To make things even bumpier, since we needed to sail the boat against the wind, we had to tack (change the direction of the sail) frequently, which tumbled the inside of the boat pretty badly. The Kid spent the whole journey tucked in her bed under a blanket, not only to avoid being sea-sick, but also so she didn’t get thrown around.
I took this picture from behind the spray hood, perching halfway on the cockpit and halfway inside the hatch trying to balance myself and steady the camera at the same time.
