This is actually the lead photograph from a story done for The Yacht Magazine in 1989. It was about former 40's singer and actress Frances Langford who, every summer sets sail from Florida with friends and crew on her 90 foot yacht to her remote island cabin in Northern Ontario. Ms. Langford was best known for her work with Bob Hope on his USO tours overseas.

    Thanks Donna. Yes, we had to get there by float plane which is where this was taken from. It was a little hazy and I was concerned but I think the haze actually made it better because it muted everything but the yacht.
