Happy August!

AUGUST??? Where did July go?

Better get out and enjoy our Island before the dreaded "Back to School" advertisements start! Following are a few ideas, but I'm keeping it short this month, because I need to get out into the sunshine myself ;-) Be sure to "like" Windlass Creative on facebook where you can find last minute tips on local happenings and share your own ideas!


p.s. Check out the new SnApS Galleries. In July I was shooting the return of Amorita to Newport and the Robert H. Tiedemann Classic Regatta. Both presented many opportunities for beautiful sailing images which you may purchase if you wish at my new  Zenfolio site.
