Voyaging with Velella: The View from the Porthole (Photos)

Enjoy this special gallery of photos from ASA writer-at-large Meghan Cleary! These are some of the views from S/V Velella’s galley porthole as she’s sailed up and down the west coast of North America.

It’s like a tiny square of exquisite chocolate rather than a Toblerone. When there’s so much rich world passing you by, what could be more refined that tasting it in porthole-sized bites?
