What Floats My Boat

Doing good work, building things, sailing in a stiff breeze on a calm sea, hiking on a mountain trail, riding my bike on the beach, taking a drive along the coast, discovering and exploring new places, spending time with friends and family, drinking good beer and good whiskey, eating good food
