    Horizon: where the trees meet the water.
    From: Renee Mattie

    Rodney,
    
    In the Northern Chesapeake, I see shoreline all around me, except in July
    and August, when it is often too hazy.  I very rarely see a sky-meets-water
    line.
    
    Good Point.  It has actually never occurred to me to trust the trees-meet
    water line.  Now I can start doing shots W and W by SW from Rock Hall
    Harbor, and perhaps even as far as SW by S from the balcony -- once I figure
    height of eye and distance-to-horizon from up there.  An argument against
    sleeping in on day 1 at the boat.
    
    I grok.  I have been enlightened.
    
    Thanks
    
    Renee

    Oh, but you have. Check the horizon distance for your height of eye on
    the beach. It may well be short of the land you see.
