Being on the hook provides a different view of the world. Some anchorages are so far from any human habitation that there is no light pollution. Billions of stars appear in the sky. When the birds stop communicating at sunset, a quiet that is almost indescribable surrounds the boat. Until this quiet is experienced, one does not recognize all the background noises that are in our city environments.
Many anchorages provide long views which gives nature the opportunity to paint the sky with color and light. A few photos may help illustrate the benefits of being on the hook.
