Auckland, city of sails.


Auckland is known as the city of sails. I like sails, they don't burn precious fossil. We are good, and once was the first country outside America to win the America;s cup.




Well, it's not far down to paradise
At least it's not for me
And if the wind is right
You can sail away and find tranquility
Oh, the canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me

It's not far to never-never land
No reason to pretend
And if the wind is right
You can find the joy of innocence again
Oh, the canvas can do miracles
Yust you wait and see
Believe me

Sailing takes me away
To where I've always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

Fantasy, it gets the best of me
When I'm sailing
All caught up in the reverie
Every word is a symphony
Won't you believe me

Sailing takes me away
To where I've always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

[Instrumental Interlude]

Well it's not far back to sanity
At least it's not for me
And if the wind is right
you can sail away and find serenity
Oh, the canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me

Sailing takes me away
To where I've always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

Such a lovely set of photos...We have a marina here too...but don't see so many sails...I would love to see a bay with boats sailing in it every evening...Luak Bay is very quiet...and the haze has descended ...and nothing much to see...sigh

I love that song! :-) You know, I never thought about sail boats in terms of the environment ... but you are so right ... they are wind powered rather than fossil fuel powered. How great is that! Thank you for sharing your pictures!
