The Incomparable Benefits of Waking Up on a Boat

The Incomparable Benefits of Waking Up on a Boat

I’ve had the pleasure (and sometimes, let’s face it, embarrassment) of waking up in a lot of varied places, but few match starting the day aboard a boat in the protected anchorages of the West Indies—sitting on the bow and just taking it all in. There’s the quiet, the cool salty air, the occasional sea bird singing ‘good morning’, and in the dawn captured in this video, a near double rainbow.

Join me in our Monthly Moment of Zen and soak up the silence:

Then see how I got here.

    Best sleep and best sunrise you can get! Sleeping on a boat is truly great therapy!

    I’m guessing the video was shot while anchored in Chatham Bay, Union Island.

      Actually, it’s Admirality Bay, Bequia! But close.
