Yacht Attack

In the past few days, two mega-yachts have moored in Tenacatita Bay.  One seems to be Barry Diller’s 150-million-dollar three-masted yacht–one of the largest sailing yachts in the world. The other one is so large we thought it was a cruise ship. Local curious minds have researched and say it is David Geffen’s 300-million-dollar yacht.  Diller, married to Diane von Fürstenberg, is the founder of Fox TV Network and owns Match.Com, Home Shopping Network, and Expedia.com. David Geffen co-created Asylum Records in 1970, Geffen Records in 1980, DGC Records in 1990, and DreamWorks SKG in 1994. There is a bit of controversy among locals, however, some of whom insist the second larger yacht is Carlos Slim’s. Below are my less than perfect shots of both yachts, taken from far away across the bay without benefit of tripod.

The prompt today was “exposure.”  What could expose one more than pulling into a small moorage in a 300 million dollar yacht?  Or even a mere 150 million dollar yacht?

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    I can get sea-sick on a yacht as easily as on a dinghy. It might be more memorable for onlookers on a yacht, but it’s the same to me, I suppose. I don’t know–I’ve not yet been to sea.
